I could install Tor browser using Webup8 PPA in Ubuntu. Is there any such repository for Solus?

You can install Tor Browser on Solus.

Download it from:

Rename to: “tor-browser.tar.xz”

Open terminal and navigate to the downloaded directory


sudo tar -xvJf tor-browser.tar.xz -C /opt/


sudo mv /opt/tor-browser*/ /opt/tor-browser
sudo ln -sf /opt/tor-browser/Browser/start-tor-browser /usr/bin/torbrowser

echo -e '[Desktop Entry]\n Version=1.0\n Name=torbrowser\n Exec=/opt/tor-browser/Browser/start-tor-browser\n Icon=/opt/tor-browser/Browser/icons/updater.png\n Type=Application\n Categories=Application' | sudo tee /usr/share/applications/torbrowser.desktop

sudo chmod +x /usr/share/applications/torbrowser.desktop

That’s It

You can try:

cp /usr/share/applications/torbrowser.desktop ~/Área\ de\ Trabalho/
cp /usr/share/applications/torbrowser.desktop ~/Desktop

There is not such third party repository available for Solus to install Tor browser. Moreover, this package is alreay requested and rejected

But the prebuilt binary available in the official website work well. Download latest version from the following location

Extract the downloaded binary and run Tor Browser Setup in the extracted folder.
