[solved] Tor-browser

Postby user2635 » 2017-08-31 19:14

I realised that the tor-browser bundle is not in the debian repos (stable).

Are there plans to include this?

Why put in repos? Easy enough to use:

I'm a non-technical user who installs everything through app stores (on the relevant DE).

Is this something that can be accommodated or shall I just follow the instructions you've put?

torbrowser-launcher was removed from 9.0 since it was testing https://tracker.debian.org/news/846258 you can download & use it manually tho :mrgreen:
