Installing TOR in Ubuntu Karmic

Instead of adding an Ubuntu repository, add a Debian repo. For Karmic Koala, add the Sid repository and get the key:

sudo sh -c 'echo deb "http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org sid main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list'
gpg --recv 74A941BA219EC810
gpg --export --armor 74A941BA219EC810 | sudo apt-key add -

Now you’ll be able to successfully installing TOR in Ubuntu Karmic:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install tor tor-geoipdb privoxy

Update: Alternatively, there is also an Launchpad PPA for Tor:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sevenmachines/tor
