If you’re using Debian, just run
apt-get install toras root.
Note that this might not always give you the latest stable Tor version, but you will receive important security fixes. To make sure that you’re running the latest stable version of Tor, see option two below.
just go to ubuntu software center and install ‘vidalia’ which is the GUI tool of tor.
For Open SUSE, Go There .
Don’t Download .gz and confuse to install. 😛
