Posted 01-15-2012 at 07:40 PM by arniekat

You need to compile and install in the following order from SlackBuilds:

cryptoki-2.20
wxGTK-2.8.12
truecrypt-7.1

CREATING AN ENCRYPTED FILE-BASED CONTAINER

At the TrueCrypt dialog box, select "Create Volume".
Select "Create an encrypted file container" and click Next.
Select "Standard TrueCrypt Volume" and click Next.
At the Volume Location dialog box, click Select File.
Navigate to any directory you wish and type a name in the File Name section of the dialog box and click Save.
You will now see the complete filename and path. If it is OK, click Next.
The default Encryption algorithm is AES 256-Bit with a default Hash algorithm of RIPEMD-160, which you can change. If it is OK, click Next.
At the Volume Size dialog box, enter the size of the encrypted file container. Then click Next.
At the Volume Password dialog box, enter the password for the encrypted volume twice and click Next.
The recommended length of container passwords is 20 characters, so you will get a warning if it is shorter. If you want to use the short password anyway, click YES.
At the Format Options dialog box, you can select a File System Type. The available choices are: FAT, Linux Ext2, Linux Ext3 and Linux Ext4.
At the Volume Format dialog box, there is a message to move your mouse as randomly as possible within the window and when ready to format, click Format.
After the Volume is created, you will get a confirmation message.
If you wish to create another Volume, click Next. Otherwise click Exit.

MOUNTING THE VOLUME

At the main TrueCrypt dialog box, click the Select File button and find the container you just created. Select Mount.
Select and highlight a free slot. They are numbered 1 through 64.
Enter the container password. Hit OK.
Enter your user password (NOT the root password). Hit OK.
The truecrypt file containers mount on /media/truecryptX
Where X is the slot number you chose from the truecrypt dialog box.
