Verified to work on Puppy Precise. Unsure about others.

Download:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/7ceekri60q4aog1/TrueCrypt_7.1a

Download then do:
chmod u+x TrueCrypt_7.1a
./TrueCrypt_7.1a

Used PortableLinuxApps to make portable.
http://portablelinuxapps.org/

EDIT: If you wish for the settings to be stored in a portable manner, use the following:

* Download above file.
* Place it in a folder somewhere and make it executable
* Inside same folder create a new file called "launcher"
* Inside launcher file add the bash script that is in quotes below.
* Save and make executable
* Create a folder named "config"
* Launch it by doing: ./launcher appname

Quote:
#!/bin/bash

PWD= `pwd`

chmod u+x "$1"
mkdir -p "$PWD/config/$1"
export HOME="$PWD/config/$1"
./$1

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

Hi All,

Does anyone know if Truecrypt will work under Slackos?

Hi Bruno,

Could you provide a step by step list of instructions for creating an archive? I tried unsuccessfully several times. But then, I was running Slacko 5.7. However, maybe I just wasn't doing it right.

Hi Watchdog,

My quick scan of the VeraCrypt cite suggested that the downloads were the first step. Thereafter, it had to be compiled. Any idea if it will run under Puppy? and which versions of Puppy?

Yes it works in every puppy I used. Truecrypt 7.1a from:

https://www.grc.com/misc/truecrypt/truecrypt.htm

is my first choice for encryption.

No need to compile. Veracrypt has an installer which works in the same manner of truecrypt. I realized it's a bit slower to decrypt archives but it works. I created a fat formatted file container aes encrypted and as for truecrypt set it for do not use kernel cryptographic services (Settings-Preferencies-System Integration).

Download:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/veracrypt/files/latest/download?source=files

Click on the tar ball and extract the installer. Give it execute permissions. Click on it to launch the installer. Create a link to the desktop from /usr/bin/veracrypt. Set it for do not use Kernel Cryptographic Services (see above).

Click on the desktop link to launch it. Click Create Volume. Choose Create an encrypted file container (what I tested). Click Next. Click Standard Veracrypt Volume (what I tested). Input the name of file container and choose location outside savefile. Click Next. Leave AES encryption. Choose volume size in Mb. Click Next. Choose password and click Next. Leave filesystem FAT (what I tested) and click next. Move for a while the mouse and click Format. Wait. Click Exit. The file container has been created.

Highlight Slot 1 in Veracrypt main window. Choose Select File and browse to the file previously created. Click Mount and insert password. Wait. Now your encrypted file container is mounted. Look at /mnt/ dir to find it. You can drag in it what you want. At the end click dismount. Hope this helps.

Hi watchdog,

Thanks for the clear instructions.

The common wisdom is that "When in doubt, read the manual." Unfortunately, it's based on two misconceptions: That manual writers (1) aren't paid by the word; and (2) can communicate to the uninformed.
