I just found this in Ubuntu Software Center and it looks pretty cool. I used to use pspvc but it hasn’t been updated since 2007… So this looks promising.

Since Lucid Lynx is still in beta, tor isn’t packaged up at torproject.org yet but there is a PPA!
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sevenmachines/tor
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install tor vidalia privoxy firefox-torbutton
To start it up with a vidalia:
Applications > Internet > Vidalia
Click on settings and add privoxy to the proxy “/usr/sbin/privoxy”
Stop tor in Vidalia and make sure privoxy is down.
$ sudo /etc/init.d/privoxy stop
Add “forward-socks4a / localhost:9050 .” (without quotes) to the bottom of: /etc/privoxy/config
$ sudo /etc/init.d/privoxy start
Start tor backup either command line or through using Vidalia.
