How to install VeraCrypt on Raspbian

  • Install libraries required by VeraCrypt:
$ sudo apt install libfuse-dev libwxbase3.0-dev
  • Download the latest version of Veracrypt that has a Raspbian package from here. The latest version for Raspbian I could find was v1.21. It can be downloaded using this command:
$ wget -L -O veracrypt-1.21-raspbian-setup.tar.bz2 https://sourceforge.net/projects/veracrypt/files/VeraCrypt%201.21/veracrypt-1.21-raspbian-setup.tar.bz2/download
  • Uncompress the file:
$ tar xvf veracrypt-1.21-raspbian-setup.tar.bz2
  • Make the installer as executable and run it:
$ chmod +x veracrypt-1.21-setup-console-armv7
$ sudo ./veracrypt-1.21-setup-console-armv7
  • That is it! Try it out:
$ veracrypt --version
VeraCrypt 1.21
  • In case you need to uninstall it in the future, this is how to do it:
$ sudo /usr/bin/veracrypt-uninstall.sh

Tried with: Raspbian 9
