Still - TOR won't install - too many errors?

I tried installing TOR via boutique, that failed - see screen cap below. But checking, found it did install but just won't start so uninstalled that, rebooted, tried installing via Terminal, and both times, same crash result in:

I read about similar issues, none the same for 18.04.03 clean install. My issue is won't install.

And if you install via the website?

Thanks Aegir81 the Tor dload tip, but now, for the fifth time, Ubu NOT I, has again lost my password. If there isn't a quick way, I'll need to re-install Ubu again, update it again, re-do all settings again etcetera - - - for the LAST TIME. Arggg!

How do you mean? How did Ubuntu lose your password? Reinstalling for the fifth time feels like overkill.

You will have to ask Ubuntu that.

This is all I can tell you...

  1. Works fine for a while
  2. Click the computer icon - click Shutdown > Click Shutdown again.
  3. Go to bed.
  4. Get up - press Start button on laptop - systems starts it's load.
  5. Password prompt comes up - as usual. Enter password. Hit ENTER: Error dictates it is the incorrect password.
  6. Retry, still won't take it.
  7. Check if keyboard layout is correct - all is good.
  8. Check for lower/cap settings - all is good.

Do I know my passwords? Better than Ubu does.

When I say 5th, it has happened 5 times at random times in over a 1 year period.

I'm not sure how, or whose tip I used, but was able to reset the password by pressing suggested key combo at boot and doing some listing of users and password reset there. Sorry, I can't remember which help it was, and am trying to figure out so I can thank them.
Once logged in, I have had a lot of other things to get done but will look and thank them.

I will also keep a print-out of how to reset the password. I have disabled screen saver and suspend from requiring a password. Not safest way, but I'm in, as they say. It's a good feeling to see Ubuntu show up. But this topic is / was about Tor not installing properly.

BTW, I found there is another user, that being my Windows desktop. How I did that is another mystery. It's possible it was trying to log me in as the other user, that being the user on my desktop (probably from when I tried to network them.)

Many thanks Aegir81 for your invaluable time and experience - I very much appreciate it.
