Yup.

I generally drag a link to /mnt/ to the desktop (if you drag it there, Puppy creates a shortcut to that folder).

Then you just look there for mounted partitions.

Just to confirm and bring this thread up-to-date:

Installed Truecrypt in Lucid 526rc. A direct install from the tar.gz or from the 7.0a Pet didn't work. It barks for a missing dmsetup.

So I installed the 6.3-pet first and then replaced /usr/bin/truecrypt (6.3 version) with the unpacked identical file from the tar.gz (7.0a version).

Changed the settings as described in this thread.

Started Truecrypt and it works fine as version 7.0a.

Newbie here, so not sure if this is the right place for this question.

I'm running Wary Puppy 5.1.4.1 (and really like it) but I'm having problems with Truecrypt. I finally got Truecrypt 7.1 installed using the suggestions in this thread (I had the "dmsetuup not found" error until I disabled encryption in Truecrypt, and now I can mount and unmount Truecrypt containers, but when I try to open the mounted container, Truecrypt says "no such file or directory: nautilus" -- what's up with this, and is there an easy fix? Thanks.

Never mind, I figured it out. I had to open the volume from /mnt/truecrypt1 rather than from directly in Truecrypt. It's all working now.

Subject description: probably my fault, but don't know how
 

Truecrypt 7.0a on Puppy 525, directory names in truecrypt file ("volume") have become truncated.

Truecrypt 7.0a running on lupu-525 kernel 2.6.33.2

originally Trucrypt worked flawlessly, however now it displays directory names truncated to six characters with “~1” added to the end, (see attached screengrabs).

If the truecrypt file is repeatedly mounted then unmounted, on the third mount the directory names are shown correctly.

I’ve been using Truecrypt for several years on windows and have never seen this problem before on windows ,
(BTW the same truecrypt "volume" (file) opens without truncated directory names in windows).
directory name is actually 'truecrypt1', 'not truecr~1'.jpg

Now getting an error message when opening truecrypt volume (screengrab attached), still able to view contents of truecrypt file though.


It just occurred to me: the version of truecrypt I have running in windows is not the same as in puppy. Perhaps opening and saving the truecrypt volume in windows has made the truecrypt file slightly incompatible with the version in Puppy ?
Now getting '' can't stat directory'' error, but truecrypt file can still be viewed.jpg

Thank you, Fishak!
I've been trying to figure this out for a couple of weeks, creating and mounting, and not being able to find TrueCrypt volumes.
Yes, it does say where its mounted right there in the TC Mound Directory column. All I needed to do was look!
Aaaagh!

PostPosted: Thu 26 Apr 2012, 18:25    Post subject: Nautilus issue...  

Hello.

If anyone is still interested in opening containters from within TC, here's a very simple hack.
It's enough to fool TC a little bit, by creating fake nautilus "binary":

Code:
#! /bin/bash

CONTAINERPATH=`echo "$@" | cut -f3 -d ' '`
rox "$CONTAINERPATH"

Save the code as "nautilus" (no quotes) in /usr/bin and make it executable.
Tested with TC 7.1

PS. rox can be replaced with your favourite filemanager, of course. Cool

EDIT: Oops, small typo in code, corrected now.

HTH
Greetings!

PostPosted: Sat 06 Apr 2013, 08:40    Post subject: Truecrypt -- help
Subject description: Cannot run truecrypt
 

HI All,

New user here, trying to get up and running with Puppy.
I installed Truecrypt in the same manner as I ahve with many other distros. I am running Puppy 5.5 Precise

The install went as expected with the comments others have mentioned about needing FUSE libraries and device mapping tools.

When I tried running Truecrypt from the command line, I get the error:

bash: /usr/bin/truecrypt: cannot execute binary file

What is wrong here?

Many thanks,
Idiopup

I don't use truecrypt, but just stumbled across an interesting article suggesting it is finished:

That makes a good read. If I understand it correctly the author says that he will continue to make available the final release of Truecrypt - even though its creators believe it is unsustainable to maintain it adequately in the future.

If the general public does decide to fork and maintain Truecrypt i would doubt their ability to keep the same quality of development and to exclude penetration of the project by people with adverse agendas.

Having said that though, the people at GRC are people whose judgement I would trust more than most..
