Where & how do I install TOR on ubuntu?


After what seems ages, I have been trying to install Tor on ubuntu. Where can I download the files from as I get very confused on which server to get them from, and how do I install it. I have installed foxyproxy as per previous instructions, but I can never get Tor to install correctly and run.

Thanks

And how about:

apt-get install tor

or using synaptic instead of apt-get for this?

[edit]
privoxy and the torbutton-extension can be installed the same way - as any software btw.

Thanks Jomen, I will give this a try. I am still a novice at linux but getting there thanks to people on this site.

I never knew how to install software before.

Thanks again
