Nothing. But reinstalling it on my latest laptop it said it was no longer supported, and, it now cannot create volumes, just open or close. Also it isn't cross platform compatible. It's mainly used for pictures of passports, house deeds, spreedsheets, pin numbers etc.  I know there is dropbox, and I use it but I am still wary of cloud based attacks

Fixing it would be good.  I can't find any other andriod/Linux encryption programs.

Linux Support / Removing AESCrypt
« on: September 23, 2014, 12:13:23 pm »
I just installed Truecrypt on my New (ish) laptop but it says it is no longer supported.  I looked at cross platform (Andriod and Linux) alternatives and chose AESCrypt.
I downloaded the 32bit version and installed via GDebi.

The thing is it will not launch. When I click on it it says......'Invalid arguments, a single filename is required'

I have looked at all methods (that I know of uninstalling but cannot find a way).
Any ideas welcome and....................I will accept all the critism of installing from unknown sources.   :-[

As soon as I updated and rebooted it came up and I generated a password.

Thanks. Just done that.

The issue was simply that in previous versions when asked if I wanted to encrypt the Home folder the random password generator came up straight away.  This time it didn't.

Linux Support / Dropbox installation in PM5

I am having problems installing Dropbox in a recently installed version of PM5.  When I click the Dropbox icon in the internet section it comes up with 'In order to use Dropbkx you must download the propriety daemon'
I have done this several times and it just locks at 'download compete 100%'
Software manger shows it's installed but won't show on task bar even after reboot.
Any ideas?

No problem Mark. It's sometimes good to try things out and learn a bit. And I've learned that my old 16gb sd card is far to slow to run PM5 from so I will try a fast usb drive next.  :)

Sorted it by creating a root point in gparted and also a swap partition.
Thanks anyway.   :)

I'm trying to install it a 16 GB SD card but I keep getting this message.....

No root file is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu.

Any ideas?

Thanks Mark.
I could replace the flash 1.8" sad as well, but that negates the cheap laptop, £70 including vat from flea bay. Unfortunately I need a couple of Windows programs still it I would wipe it.

Thanks for that Mark.

Could I install PM5 on an external disk say a large usb stick or drive and boot from it as though it was installed?

Hi.
I am trying to install PM5 along Windows 7 on a Dell D430
  I am using a live USB.  The only option I am goptions I am getting is to completely remove Windows 7 not install alongside.  Any ideas?
