I don't know if this will work, but it's worth a try, and could do no harm.
Open .bashrc (a hidden file in your home directory...notice the preceding dot).
Put something like this at the end of the file:
alias tt='./start-tor-brower'
(the tt can be whatever you want to use for an alias)
Save and close the file.
From a user terminal, type and enter:
source .bashrc
(notice the dot)
Now try starting tor from the terminal with your alias.
