how to install truecrypt?

Post by nikos »

Hello All,
I try to install truecrypt with no success. Double clic on the file opens with gedit, from a terminal gives no permission. From the file proprieties I can not activate run the file as program. No problem with Ubuntu 11.10 I can activate run the file as aprogram.
Any help?
Thank you

Try changing the file permissions. Right-Click > Properties, and go to the Permissions tab. You'll be able to see if you have access to the file or not.

Whenever I come across this problem with files, I just use:

Code: Select all

sudo chmod 777 /path/to/file
and this changes the permissions to the lowest possible settings...so use it carefully.

i think after you double click and open the archive it is possible to right click and install via terminal, or something like that, just trying to remember how it went, that way you only need to give password for elevated terminal
