    Re: Truecrypt

    Why do you think that it would be different for Saucy then for Raring? Unless of course the developers of truecrypt have not yet packaged their software for saucy. The Ubuntu 13.10 Software Centre has in something called tcplay. It is described as

    as a free (BSD licensed), pretty much fully featured (including multiple keyfiles, cipher cascades, etc) and stable TrueCrypt implementation
    There you are. It is the same in Saucy as for Raring.
    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    Re: Truecrypt

    Are you downloading the application from here? If so, use file-roller to extract it, then run the setup. In my case I downloaded the 64 bit version:

    Code:
    sudo ./truecrypt-7.1a-setup-x64
    a window will pop up and walk you through the setup process. Once you have it installed, open a terminal and type:

    Code:
    truecrypt

    Re: Truecrypt

    Greetings,
    Truecrypt is installed from a bash script. I copy the setup script to my bin directory and run it from the command prompt. Works perfect for me. I also create a .desktop file and icon to put on my launcher. Truecrypt is one of my must have programs.

    Installed file-roller, but cannot figure out how to use it to extract Truecrypt.

    Just use tar to extract.

    tar xf truecrypt-7.1a-setup-x64.tar.gz

    Re: Truecrypt

    Greetings,
    Everyone has their preferences here but Archive Manager is preinstall with Saucy. I don't see why someone would have a problem right clicking on a file and choosing to extract the file. Especially when they joined the forum in 2006. Am I missing something?

    I can extract the file with Archive Manager, but the resulting setup file has no application opening option except gedit.
    I have never had a problem installing Truecrypt in other Ubuntu versions.

    You run the setup script as cariboo has already told you.
