Howto: Install and use Truecrypt

Postby grimdestripador » Wed Mar 18, 2009 2:36 pm

goto truecrypt website and download ubuntu package. I'm running LM6, so i choose 32bit.
Extract the content. Click open location.
Right Click the whitespace, select open terminal here

Code: Select all

sudo ./truecrypt-6.1a-setup-ubuntu-x86

Agree to sell your soul

Open Truecypt from LM menu.
Create a Volume File, I made it ext2 with AES encryption, linux only. Create and wait.
Choose Slot 1, Click Select file, select the newly created volume file
Click Mount, and enter password, notice that nautilus now has your drive in the "Places" list.



Optional extra GUI
Download truecrypt GUI
