Problem with Lubuntu

Post by Roentegen » Mon Apr 30, 2018 6:44 am

I have updated my system from Lubuntu 15.04 32 bit to Lubuntu 16.04 LTS and AES Crypt GUI don't work anymore.
It seem to be properly installed , if I click on the right button it appears in the menu but it doesn't work.

I have tried also Lubuntu 18.04 LTS but, in this case, AES don't install at all. It don't give me any error message, simply when I click on execute nothing happens.

Any suggestion ?

Thanks in Advance

Nobody are facing the same problem ?

I have tried in Lubuntu 16.04 the command: aescrypt -e -p +Password +NameFile and it works while, using right-click it do nothing even if the Aescrypt command appear correctly.

I had never used this version of Linux. I some difficulty getting it installed, but I finally got it installed.

I could not get AES Crypt to install from the GUI. After struggling so much just getting Lubuntu to install, I was not surprised. This is clearly a really stripped-down version of Ubuntu. However, I was able to install it from the command line by running the install program:

Code: Select all

$ ./AESCrypt-GUI-3.1.1-Linux-x86-Install
When I tried to encrypt a file, it would not work. Again, I dropped to the command line and learned that "zenity" needed to be installed. This is the software that will display the password prompt in the GUI. So, I installed it this way:

Code: Select all

$ apt-get install zenity
Once that was installed, it worked fine from the GUI.

Thank You Wery Much Paulej

Adding Zenity in Lubuntu 16.04 solved the problem.

Now AES Crypt works perfectly.
