Add TrueCrypt to mint by default.

TrueCrypt is the easiest cross platform encryption software. Windows and Mac both have easy encryption. Linux mint should have the same.

NSA is spying on us. They are looking through our hard drives in the airports. We need this now!

Any word?

Nice idea. Even better with a program that supports PGP/GPG for mail etc.

I'll promote this even if it is not the perfect solution.

Can we get this by mint 14?

For some reasion I can not get this to work on LXDE desktop.

Just include it in the Repository.
I don't think is needed in default installation, although I use it daily.
This is the same idea as TrueCrypt in standard installation

A good idea, promote it.

We have drop box, but we don't even have true crypt support to protest us. Thats one huge reason to have this installed by default.

The problem with luks support is that a newb like me knows nothing about it. True crypt is easy to use and intuitive.

Whats LUKS support?

Trucrypt is an excellent open source utility but we also have LUKS support which is just as effective.

It may be optional but it helps mint's "works out of the box feel" Also easy encryption has been built into windows since Windows 2000. Mac has their version default in the OS. Its a basic feature that every OS should have.

This is optional for the user and is not part of the operating system
