I have a number of encrypted volumes on external media encrypted either with TrueCrypt or VeraCrypt. What is the recommended way to install and use VeraCrypt under Ubuntu?

There is user Unit 193 who prepares ready builds of VeraCrypt on Launchpad. You can easily install it by adding his repo to Ubuntu sources:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:unit193/encryption
sudo apt update
sudo apt install veracrypt

You should be aware that this repo is not related to the software developer and because of it you can't be 100% sure what you install or update in future. However Unit 193 is Xubuntu developer and he is well known in open source community. This is enough for me to sleep well.
