I am trying to install Tor and after opening what I think is a "run" window, I get this error message. What am I doing wrong/

jennifer@debian:~$ apt-get install tor
E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13: Permission denied)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root?

Hey Jennifer_77,

You are not installing the file as root from what I can see.

your account type should atleast be admin
open terminal
type sudo -i
press enter
type the password
you should be using terminal as root now
enter apt-get install tor
and you should be good to go

If you need anymore help let me know

:)
