How To Install TrueCrypt (Patched With An Ubuntu AppIndicator) On Ubuntu 13.04. 12.10, 12.04

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may already know, TrueCrypt is an open source disk encryption tool. Because it uses a tray icon, but the tray icon support on Ubuntu has been removed, a third party developer patched TrueCrypt to use an AppIndicator instead.

In this article I will show you how to install TrueCrypt with an Ubuntu AppIndicator on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal and Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, via PPA:

Add the PPA:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:stefansundin/truecrypt

Update local repos:

$ sudo apt-get update

Install TrueCrypt:

$ sudo apt-get install truecrypt
