    After clean install of Ubuntu 16.04, VeraCrypt and TrueCrypt are acting weird

    I've been a long time TrueCrypt user, and I understand that VeraCrypt is the updated version. I clean installed Ubuntu 16.04 this morning, and both of these programs now require that I disable the kernel cryptographic services in order to open my containers. Should I be worried? Do I need to install something else too?

    If I don't disable the kernel cryptographic services, it gives me an error when I try to open the container. Says:

    No such file or directory:
    dmsetup

    VeraCrypt:rocess::Execute:88

    sudo apt-get install dmsetup

    will do it. dmsetup is now no standard application, so you must install it.

    Thanks for the tip, BeMueller. Once I installed dmsetup, truecrypt started working again just like it used to.

    Thank you, BeMueller. After installing dmsetup, truecrypt works like before.

    Edit: Duplicate post when I didn't see my original one. I'd be happy to have it deleted.

    Thank you. This got my Truecrypt working again. It would not open a valid encrypted partition but now it does.

    Re: After clean install of Ubuntu 16.04, VeraCrypt and TrueCrypt are acting weird

    Hi guys, I'm really sorry to bump this old thread but I'm still having an issue with VeraCrypt and Ubuntu-Gnome 16.04.1. I did a fresh install on a Surface Pro 3, ran apt-get install dmsetup and installed veracrypt. When I try to mount an encrypted container in VeraCrypt, it just gets stuck on the "Please wait" screen. I can't seem to find any logs or information to tell me where it's stuck so I can start troubleshooting. Were there any other steps required to get VeraCrypt working or was it simply just "install dmsetup". Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Wow! This is great. Thanks for the help. Ubuntu needs to a loooooooooooooot in intracting with user. VeraCrypt provided not clear help about if I needed this "dmsetup".
