How To Use VeraCrypt On Linux by https://is.gd/HFNBWZ

For years, TrueCrypt was the encryption tool of choice for Linux users. It worked well, and it did everything you could ever want. Then one day, the project was discontinued. Ever since then, Linux users have been scrambling to find an encryption tool that works as well.

For most, the best tool to use is VeraCrypt. The main reason that VeraCrypt stands out from the rest of the new encryption tools is that it is a “fork” from the old TrueCrypt code. This means if you’ve used TrueCrypt for years but want something that is actively maintained, you can install VeraCrypt on Linux and everything will continue to work.

We’ve looked at ways to make GNOME Shell look like Unity before, but a new theme from the b00merang project provides what is perhaps the closest clone yet. It’s a Unity 7 GNOME Shell theme that faithfully recreates the look of the Ubuntu desktop shell in GNOME, BFB-included!
