It'd be great to have a step-by-step installation process in a README.

I ran what I thought was the appropriate included shell script, but when I launched Cwtch for the first time it couldn't connect -- it seemed to have trouble finding the included version of tor.

I eventually opted to just install tor via sudo apt install tor. On re-launch, Cwtch connected no problem. But I think that means it's not using the included version of tor? Which sounds preferable.

I'm running Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS.

Should be remedying this by installing the tor binary that is bundled to the appropriate lib/cwtch dir and having hte app be aware of that location and try it :)
