[Solved]Suggestion: add Zulucrypt to repo

Zulucrypt (GUI for cryptsetup) - GPL replacement to Truecrypt.

Relatively new, but fully mature project with an ambitious, organized and actively involved developer.  The newest version supports TC volume management. (Developer also provides SHA1 checksum for the download - given when you click the download file).

Clear and easy install directions are also offered in Build Instructions, located inside the tar.bz2. (Note: good habit to install "checkinstall" and use it to make install the source into a .deb for easy removal of all installed files if you should chose to uninstall at a later time)

Find it here ....

Screenshots .... … 8586479841

As several distros have decided to forbid TC based on some license concerns. An example here ...

Re: [Solved]Suggestion: add Zulucrypt to repo

Zulucrypt is currently in Siduction Experimental/Unstable (Thanks to towo... … pic&t=2597).

If you chose to install, it is recommended that you return to your sources and comment out (#) the Siduction Experimental/Unstable line to avoid pulling in any other unnecessary package updates from Experimental/Unstable.

To get it, edit your source list..

sudo geany /etc/apt/sources.list

Add the following...

##Siduction Experimental/Unstable Repository
deb unstable main contrib non-free
#deb-src unstable main contrib non-free

Get the siduction-archive-keyring...


Install the keyring...

sudo dpkg -i siduction-archive-keyring_2013.03.29_all.deb

Remove the downloaded .deb file...

rm siduction-archive-keyring_2013.03.29_all.deb

Update apt...

sudo apt-get update

Finally, install zulucrypt...

sudo apt-get install zulucrypt

To run the program, you'll have to add it to your Openbox menu, or run the following command in your terminal emulator...


Experimental currently appears to be one version behind the developer's site.

If anyone knows of a better way to install the package from the Siduction repos, please feel free to add your directions below.

Re: [Solved]Suggestion: add Zulucrypt to repo

Thank you for introducing my project to this forum DapperMe17,
very much appreciated it.

I just though i should register to inform you of recent development.
I just released version 4.6.4 and this version adds an ability to create and open both normal and hidden truecrypt volumes.

The download page for the new release is:
This project now gives a GUI solution for creation of LUKS,PLAIN as well as TRUECRYPT volumes.It is,in a sense,"a one stop solution for block device encryption"

If you are in a market for udisks replacement,the project also ships with an additional tool called "zuluMount" and its aim is to do what udisks and friends does,mounting and unmounting of partitions but zuluMount does better since it can also can manage zuluCrypt encrypted volumes.

More screenshots and general information about the page can be found in this linux:

The seduction package is just waaaayyy to old now and i think its best if its not included at all.Somebody has volunteered to create a debian package for this latest release and i promise to included a link here when i get a hold of it.

Once against,thank you for introducing my project to this community

Technically, the command should be something like this:

sudo apt-get install -t experimental zulucrypt

Also, it is probably a good idea to properly pin the siduction repo in the preferences file; perhaps something like:

Package: *
Pin: release a=experimental
Pin-Priority: 100


Package: *
Pin: release o=siduction,a=experimental
Pin-Priority: 100

One benefit of the pinning in the preferences file is that you shouldn't have to worry about pulling unnecessary updates from the siduction repo.
