Install Tor with torsocks and proxychains on Ubuntu 18.04

sudo apt install tor torsocks proxychains
tor --hash-password "passwordhere"

CookieAuthentication OR HashedControlPassword (if you choose to uncomment HashedControlPassword, copy the hashed password you got in the previous step and paste it next to HashedControlPassword in the torrc file)

nano /etc/tor/torrc
# This provides a port for our script to talk with. If you set this then be
# sure to also set either CookieAuthentication *or* HashedControlPassword!
#
# You could also use ControlSocket instead of ControlPort, which provides a
# file based socket. You don't need to have authentication if you use
# ControlSocket. For this example however we'll use a port.

ControlPort 9051 # <--- uncomment this ControlPort line

# Setting this will make Tor write an authentication cookie. Anything with
# permission to read this file can connect to Tor. If you're going to run
# your script with the same user or permission group as Tor then this is the
# easiest method of authentication to use.

CookieAuthentication 1 #either uncomment this or below HashedControlPassword line

# Alternatively we can authenticate with a password. To set a password first
# get its hash...
#
# % tor --hash-password "my_password"
# 16:E600ADC1B52C80BB6022A0E999A7734571A451EB6AE50FED489B72E3DF
#
# ... and use that for the HashedControlPassword in your torrc.

HashedControlPassword 16:E600ADC1B52C80BB6022A0E999A7734571A451EB6AE50FED489B72E3DF #if you choose to uncomment this line, paste your hashed password here
sudo /etc/init.d/tor restart
