Infrastructure node for other people's use of Tor network
Tor is composed of a client, at least three middle nodes, and a public endpoint, and the result is that privacy-seeking users bounce their web, ftp, ssh, other traffic around the network, and recipients, observers, and even the relays themselves have difficulty tracking the source of the stream.
This package provides only the middle nodes, which are essential for a robust network, but don't provide an entry point or create an exit point.
This package DOES NOT INCREASE YOUR OWN PRIVACY. If you wish to use Tor yourself, get Tor Browser.
Enable snaps on Linux Mint and install Tor middle relay
Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.
Snap is available for Linux Mint 18.2 (Sonya), Linux Mint 18.3 (Sylvia), Linux Mint 19 (Tara), Linux Mint 19.1 (Tessa) and the latest release, Linux Mint 20 (Ulyana).
You can find out which version of Linux Mint you’re running by opening System info from the Preferences menu.
On Linux Mint 20, /etc/apt/preferences.d/nosnap.pref needs to be removed before Snap can be installed. This can be accomplished from the command line:
