Just follow the below steps to help you out.

Execute these commands in your Terminal  Ctrl + Alt + t:

You need to export your proxy environment variables using

 sudo -E add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/tor-browser

Run these commands to install TOR:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tor-browser

Hope that helps you out.
