Because of a reinstall of the OS and a not perfectly migration of my data I had to reinstall a few things. Under these things were homebrew and truecrypt.

brew doctor doesn't show any problems now. Only when I tried to install truecrypt. I know there is a version with brew cask. But I don't like the visual interface so I decided to search just with brew search for it. I show you what I did:

First I searched for truecrypt. Found it and installed it:

Newton:local hendrikwindel$ brew search truecrypt No formula found for "truecrypt". Searching pull requests... Open pull requests: truecrypt: Initial formula for version 7.1a (https://github.com/Homebrew/homebrew/pull/24078)

After it was done I tried do use it:

Newton:local hendrikwindel$ man truecrypt No manual entry for truecrypt

Newton:local hendrikwindel$ truecrypt --mount /Users/***/física1 -bash: /Applications/TrueCrypt.app/Contents/MacOS/Truecrypt: No such file or directory

I think it didn't unistall the whole truecrypt.app or rather some lists are still there. If I remember correctly I had to add the terminal commands for truecrypt additionally when I installed truecrypt the first time - before I found out that homebrew exists.

So my question is: How can use truecrypt which I installed via brew pull and how can I fix this issue?

Edit:

Newton:local hendrikwindel$ type truecrypt truecrypt is aliased to '/Applications/TrueCrypt.app/Contents/MacOS/Truecrypt --text'

  • What does type truecrypt return? – nohillside Apr 1 '14 at 10:37

You pull is, which means the repo is copied to your computer but you need to execute :

brew install truecrypt

to really install it.
