As best I can tell from the torproject.org site, there is no ebuild or equivalent to manage it. A direct download would be managed outside the central package manager. Many users try to categorically avoid this situation, since careless use of unmanaged installations system-wide can make the system quite difficult to maintain and update. Further, anyone who cares about this sort of thing will have all the areas writable by unprivileged users mounted noexec, which breaks the ability of users to run things not installed system-wide. This unfortunately includes things such as Tor Browser, necessitating that it be installed system-wide, which in turn strongly recommends managing it through an ebuild.

I am stuck on the same issue. I have found some posts stating that the issue can be solved by updating the signature, and I have found different posts in other webs dealing with this issue:


Have you been able to solve it?

Edit: This is the output when manually verifying the package:
Code:
gpg --verify tor-browser-linux64-7.5_en-US.tar.xz.asc
gpg: assuming signed data in 'tor-browser-linux64-7.5_en-US.tar.xz'
gpg: Signature made Tue Jan 23 01:50:13 2018 CET
gpg:                using RSA key D1483FA6C3C07136
gpg: requesting key D1483FA6C3C07136 from http server hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net
gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.
gpg: Total number processed: 0
gpg: Can't check signature: No public key


Cheers!

There is an overlay with an ebuild. I am using the torbrowser overlay.

Cheers!

If the file /usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/torbrowser_launcher/launcher.py is modified, so the verifiction is not performed (I uncommented the 'verify' function),

Code:
            # download and install
            print(download_message)
            self.set_gui('task', download_message,
                         ['download_version_check',
                          'set_version',
                          'download_sig',
                          'download_tarball',
                          # 'verify',
                          'extract',
                          'run'])


Tor browser correctly starts and installs. It is an issue with the availability of the signature in the key-server.

Cheers!
