Tor signature key - HowTo

Postby viking60 » 26 Jan 2017, 16:55

I was sure I had documented this but I can't find it again so I'll write it up here (again).

From time to time the Tor Browser update on Linux will not go through and complain about the signatures.

The download goes fine and at the end of the installation it will break off due to the lack of the right signatures.

This happens to me on Manjaro sometimes and what I need to do is:

Code: Select all

gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 0x4E2C6E8793298290

(You may have to install gpg first)

After that the installation will go through.

The key above is correct at the moment but it may change. In that case you will find it on the Tor pages:
:A ... es.html.en

Scroll down to Mac OS and Linux and there you will find it.
To verify your current Tor Browser signature you can do a:

Code: Select all

gpg --fingerprint 0x4E2C6E8793298290
Manjaro 64bit on the main box -Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz and nVidia Corporation GT200b [GeForce GTX 275] (rev a1. + Centos on the server - Arch on the laptop.
