Linux with Tor


I just installed Ubuntu but did not realize it did not support TOR.
I like how easy this install went as I am not computer savvy AT ALL!
Can anyone direct me to a download , site so I can get the x86_64
or a Linux that will run TOR?
Is there anything easy like Ubuntu?
Thanks

Ubuntu 10.10 is not on list

Like I said,I am green. Am I missing it?
When it says to "You will need to add the following repositories to your /etc/apt/sources.list file: " is this in my control panel? or where do I find this place to copy and paste these instructions?
Thanks for helping the likes of ME!

It may be in a GUI somewhere.. something about Software Repositories or in Add/Remove Programs?

But it's saying to open a terminal and open (as root) the file /etc/apt/sources.list in your favorite text editor.. vi, nano, gedit .... e.g.: sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Problem solvedThank you
I have now learned what and where a terminal is. I followed the codes on this page http://www.webupd8.org/2010/09/how-t...untu-1010.html And got the Tor download for 32 bit linux browser bundle. all seems to run now.
I will read what you have suggested though.
