How to install Tor Browser on Manjaro 18 Linux step by step instructions



  1. Open up the terminal and clone the latest Tor Browser AUR repository:
    $ git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/tor-browser.git
    
  2. Import the Tor Browser project PGP signature to be able to verify Tor Browser downloaded tarball during the AUR package build:
    $ gpg --keyserver pool.sks-keyservers.net --recv-keys 0xEB774491D9FF06E2
    gpg: key 4E2C6E8793298290: 1 duplicate signature removed
    gpg: key 4E2C6E8793298290: 269 signatures not checked due to missing keys
    gpg: key 4E2C6E8793298290: 1 signature reordered
    gpg: /home/linuxconfig/.gnupg/trustdb.gpg: trustdb created
    gpg: key 4E2C6E8793298290: public key "Tor Browser Developers (signing key) " imported
    gpg: no ultimately trusted keys found
    gpg: Total number processed: 1
    gpg:               imported: 1
    
  3. Build the AUR package. First navigate to the newly created tor-browser directory. Then execute the makepkg command to build the Tor Browser AUR package:
    $ cd tor-browser/
    $ makepkg -s
    
    When finished the result should be the newly build Tor Browser package ready for the installation:
    $ ls *pkg.tar.xz
    tor-browser-8.0.3-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
    
  4. Using the pacman command install Tor Browser package. Replace the package name suffix with the Tor Browser version you have compiled previously:
    $ sudo pacman -U --noconfirm tor-browser-8.0.3-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
    
  5. The Tor Browser installation is now complete. Use the start menu and search for Tor Browser to start browsing or simply start it from the command line:
    $ tor-browser
