It is in the repo for X86 V8.
Please read the book:

You did not specify your version and platform so I can't say whether it is available for your machine.

That still does not identify the version and platform.
Show the output of:
version
and
uname -a

Doesn't "tce-load -iw tor" work?

I suggest you install and read tor-docs.

The tor extension does not create a menu item or icon, but you can run it from a terminal window.

There are also some hints on use in /usr/local/etc/tor/tor-tips.txt

If you look at the various links in tor-tips.txt, the tor people recommend using the tor browser bundle

I've never tried the script, but I just downloaded the pre-built tor browser bundle from the tor web site and it works - google comes up in the Ukraine...

I used tor-browser-linux64-7.0.1_en-US.tar.xz

Unpack the tarball somewhere and then:
Code: [Select]
$ tce-load -i tor zenity glibc_apps dbus-glib gtk2 bash
$ cd tor-browser_en-US/Browser
$ ./start-tor-browser

Note that, since this uses a modified version of firefox, a symlink /lib64 -> /lib is required for corepure64.

Note also that the tor-browser-bundle cannot access tinycorelinux.net, it gives a 403 error  :)
