Thanks for the links. I will download all and put them in a torrent in case others want to use this program in the future.
I did get 7.1a to work, but something funny happened. I tried to install it in 14.04. The installer wouldn't even start, even by trying to install it with the terminal. I then tried it in 17. Right click, execute. The computer was thinking so I went to sleep. This morning when I went to check the computer the screen was black and said "The file is possibly corrupt. The file header checksum does not match the compared checksum". For the heck of it I booted back into 14.04. This time truecrypt did install. With other versions sometimes the installer would try and run, but failed to install correctly. The icon showed up like it was installed, but wouldn't run. The funny thing is that in both Ubuntu and Mint, I had the same truecrypt file on a usb drive so it's not like I redownloaded it. So if the file is corrupt like Mint claims, why did it install in Ubuntu? I transfered 50G of data, and it now works like it should.
I feel like such a noob right now, but I have been using Linux off and on since 2002, and as my main OS for 5-6 years. Methinks there is some sort of bug with Ubuntu that Canonical hasn't fixed yet, and that bug was inherited to Mint and Lubuntu? If anyone has a theory (or knows the exact reason) why it failed to install literally dozens of times, I'd like to hear it. Oh, and don't say "operator error". :P
