Tor on ChromeOS - is it possible?


(it's a learning process) #1

Hello there people…

It’s sad, I know, but I use ChromeOS as a simple daily. So far I’ve only been able to run Chrome, because, well, it’s that same OS, but I was hoping to run Tor. Do you guys know of any way to use the browser on ChromeOS despite it’s file type?

I use tor on Chrome all the time. You can also use transmission torrent web interface for downloading torrents.

transmission-daemon 2.84 (14307)

also use it with proxychains :stuck_out_tongue:

(xenial)[email protected]:~$ tor -V
May 13 07:42:07.262 [notice] Tor 0.3.2.10 (git-0edaa32732ec8930) running on Linux with Libevent 2.0.21-stable, OpenSSL 1.0.2g, Zlib 1.2.8, Liblzma 5.1.0alpha, and Libzstd N/A.

And I would only imagine this would mean following the tutorial you sent to get Linux on Chrome OS…

this might help get it installed

gksudo 'apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 886DDD89'
sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org $(lsb_release -s -c) main"
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y --allow-unauthenticated install tor-geoipdb polipo
sudo cp /etc/polipo/config /etc/polipo/config.bak
sudo wget -O /etc/polipo/config http://gitweb.torproject.org/torbrowser.git/blob_plain/HEAD:/build-scripts/config/polipo.conf
sudo service polipo restart
