AESCrypt on Ubuntu 20.04

Post by sprocketoctopus »

G'day.

I can report that it works using these instructions:

viewtopic.php?t=1173

However, the GUI installer that opens up has no text in the dialog box.

See screenshots.

Thanks for a great piece of software!

I've seen a few GUIs where that sort of thing happened. It just reminds me that I need to find a better installer.

Try this:

Code: Select all

$ ./AESCrypt-GUI-3.11-Linux-x86_64-Install --mode console
That will bypass the GUI install window and just install the software. It should still work as expected once installed.
