5. Installing VeraCrypt on ARM
These Raspberry Pi topics are outdated. Be sure to check more current sources. I’m keeping this information here for reference and hope to update it during 2021.
Here’s a quick summary of the steps I use to install VeraCrypt 1.21 command-line tools on the Raspberry Pi and other ARM-based distributions.
On some distributions,
libwxbasemust be installed:
sudo apt -y install libwxbase3.0-0
Download the source tarball:
Decompress the tarball:
Extract the tarball contents:
tar -xpvf veracrypt-1.21-raspbian-setup.tar
Verify the installer binary permissions include executable:
% ls -l total 14312 [...] -rw-r--r-- 1 bob bob 7311360 Jul 16 13:37 veracrypt-1.21-raspbian-setup.tar -rwxr-xr-x 1 bob bob 2988876 Jul 16 13:32 veracrypt-1.21-setup-console-armv7 -rwxr-xr-x 1 bob bob 4314513 Jul 16 13:32 veracrypt-1.21-setup-gui-armv7
Recent versions of VeraCrypt ship with the installer set to executable. If necessary, change installer binary permissions to include executable:
chmod +x ./veracrypt-1.21-setup-console-armv7
Install the binary:
Accept the license agreement and enter your password at the
sudo prompt to complete installation.
