    Is there a program like cryptkeeper for Ubuntu?

    Hey,

    Thanks in advance.

    There doesn't appear to be any mention of the ppa on the veracrypt site. How do you know it's secure

    There is Gnome Encfs Manager, which does the same job.

    Alternatively, you could manage the encFs directories by using the command line. That avoids any security issues introduced by GUI applications.

    Try SiriKali. I'm not sure if it's available for all *buntus.

    The ppa is maintained by some Ubuntu user and not by varacrypt apparently, it gives you a convenient way to install and update. If you are CIA or some such and don't trust it you can always download and install from varacryot itself.
