zuluCrypt-cli has a direct dependency on libcryptsetup and libgrypt and it breaks everytime these two packages are updated in a way that change the name of their shared libraries and a solution is to rebuild zuluCrypt.

Will look into making zuluCrypt-gui(the GUI component of the project) notice if its command line component is broken as stated above and recommend a solution.

Hi @Danbar Thanks for your comment. I verified and had the same problem on my system : 4.20.10-arch1-1-ARCH. The solution (like last year) is to rebuild ZuluCrypt and it works like a charm ;-) I wrote a message to mhogomchungu so he could give us some more explanations.

I updated my manjaro to Stable 18.0.3. The message that I am reading right now is: Reading partition properties took longer than expected and the operation was terminated. Click refresh to try again. I cannot access my partitions protected by zulucrypt. Thanks.

If you recently experienced problems with zuluCrypt, the solution is to rebuild zuluCrypt :

(stating mhogomchungu) zuluCrypt has a dependency on libcryptsetup. cryptsetup prior to version 2.0.0 has a library named "" cryptsetup version 2.0.0 going up has a library named "" zuluCrypt is failing because it can no longer find cryptsetup library it depends on. Solution is to rebuild !

rebuild zuluCrypt to force it to use the updated library version.

Version 5.4.0 gives "Unrecognized ERROR with status number 127 encountered" when key is entered. both zuluCrypt-cli and zuluMount-cli give: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

Solution - Rebuild

Thanks to the mighty mhogomchungu.

version 5.4.0
-- fix a bug that caused a wrong password to be used when creating a TrueCrypt/VeraCrypt volume from zuluCrypt-gui.
Easiest way to notice this was that a just created volume could not be unlocked.
-- fix a build issue on some distributions.

@egrupled: Done. Thanks for the reminder ;-)

@salan54 Ok. Can you adjust -git version accordingly?

salan54 commented on 2017-11-02 15:12

@egrupled: I will remove the "echo..." from the PKGBUILD. But I think I will keep the cp line because I like to have this copy of the changelog in my working directory to copy and paste the modifs here. I know, it is very egoistic as it only serves my own needs. I hope it is not a big deal ;-)

@salan54 Almost there, two redundant lines in PKGBUILD left:

package() {
echo "changelog updated"
cp "${srcdir}/${_altpkgname}-${pkgver}"/changelog ../${pkgname}.changelog
