How to build Veracrypt from source

📅 2021-Feb-07 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 🏷️ veracrypt ⬩ 📚 Archive

I recently installed the arm64 version of Ubuntu on my Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ board. After that, I wanted to access one of my Veracrypt volumes, but could not find the Veracrypt tool for installation in the Ubuntu repository. The ARM packages of Veracrypt available for download turned out to be built for armhf and not arm64.

Building Veracrypt from source and using it turned out to be easy:

$ sudo apt install g++ libfuse-dev pkg-config yasm libwxbase3.0-dev
$ make NOGUI=1
$ sudo cp main/veracrypt /usr/bin

Tried with: Ubuntu 20.04
