    Default installing TOR errors.

    Hey Gents,

    Quick question see if anyone is getting the same errors I am. I am running bt5 R3 full HDD install KDE to be exact.

    And knowing tor doesnt come installed by default I tried installing it manually. Following instructions from youtube Several video and goggling the content also came up with the same search results and the vast majority of all the sites and videos resort to these instructions as follows ...

    Add the tor repository into your repository list(in this tutorial, I use Backtrack 5 R3 Debian base.) Edit file /etc/apt/sources.list and put below string into it.
    - deb http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org lucid main

    2. Add the new key for repository and update the software list
    - gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv 886DDD89
    - gpg --export A3C4F0F979CAA22CDBA8F512EE8CBC9E886DDD89 | sudo apt-key add -
    - apt-get update

    3. Install Tor and Privoxy
    - apt-get install tor privoxy tor-geoipdb vidalia

    4. Edit config in privoxy config to
    - forward-socks4a / 127.0.0.1:9050 .

    5. Start the privoxy.
    - /etc/init.d/privoxy start

    6. Config your web browser to use privoxy (localhost:8118)

    7. Test it use Tor network with URL
    https://check.torproject.org/

    __________________________________________

    Now i've done this several times also.

    and when get i get to this point during completing the process i get this output error.

    apt-get install tor privoxy tor-geoipdb vidalia <~

    i get the following "root@bt:~# apt-get install tor privoxy tor-geoipdb vidalia
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Package tor is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    E: Package tor has no installation candidate"

    Can anyone help me. Seems weird i had no issues installing tor before in R2 at all using Tork the tor manager. But now tork has issues installing automatically and im having issues installing it manually. Any suggestions or feed back would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance all...
