TrueCrypt is an excellent piece of free/open software which allows users to easily encrypt their data. It has a very simple, straightforward but effective interface.

I think Linux Mint should include TrueCrypt in the standard Linux Mint disk. It would be useful to have access to it in LiveCD mode, as well as in a fresh installation.

Any upate on this idea?

This idea has overwhelmingly high votes. Please implement.

Simply add it to the repository and I'll be happy.
Encryption slows down the system which is against my "fast, slim and efficient" credo, but my external drive does have AES containers with personal stuff inside, so I do need it from time to time.

Just as Gurman and SeventhReign: Just include it in the Repository

We need this ever since we started getting drop box installed by default. Drop box is not encrypted from the users side.

Also I want this on the LXDE version.

I agree with this. We need easy encryption. Windows 2000 has easier encryption then most linux distros.

Adding it too the repository would be very nice, but I see no need for it too be installed by default.

Even if it is one of the single greatest pieces of software ever developed :-D

Not needed.


Gurman 11 years ago

Include TrueCrypt to Mint repository.
But as default app ("from box") it may be not need.

Not needed for the average person.

TrueCrypt is great, but an average user suffers from less performance and additional problems in every days use. I don't think it's worth it.

Yes, it is something that may even bring the UK's Ministry of Defence onside, judging by the number of laptops they loose with secret information upon them!!!!

I'm also a fan of that piece of software, mainly for professional reasons. I totally agree.
