Hi everyone, struglling with installing tor on lxle.

commands used where:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/tor-browser
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install tor-browser
when i try to then run tor by simply typing

yes, it should be tor-browser.

shouldn't this:
"sudo add-apt-repository"
be this:
"sudo apt-add-repository"

you should also provide us with the output of terminal commands, or actually read them yourself.
usually they contain hints to what's wrong.

I thought the preferred way to get Tor was straight from their site...not from a PPA. I know that works as intended, I use it often.
