installing VeraCrypt

To install from the VeraCrypt website release, use wget -P /tmp to download the Linux archive file, then use tar xvf /tmp/veracrypt-1.23-setup.tar.bz2 -C /tmp to extract its contents to /tmp. Navigate to /tmp with cd /tmp, then use ./veracrypt-1.23-setup-gui-x64 to install VeraCrypt.

To install from Ubuntu PPA, use sudo add-apt-repository ppa:unit193/encryption -y && sudo apt update && sudo apt install veracrypt -y.

Personal experience

The Ubuntu PPA initially worked in Kubuntu 17.10, but then stopped working.
