How to access bitlocker encrypted drive in Ubuntu 16.04? Dislocker utility worked in 14.04 but a package which dislocker depends libpolarssl is missing in 16.04. Is there any workaround or any other utility?


You can install polarssl and dislocker on Ubuntu 16.04 by following TuxDiary - dislocker: decrypt BitLocker encrypted volumes.

Open the terminal and type:

sudo apt-get install libmbedcrypto0 libmbedtls-dev libfuse-dev

If git is not installed on your system you can install git by running the following command. Open the terminal and type:

sudo apt install git

Then you can install dislocker from source using git. Open the terminal and type the below commands.

git clone https://github.com/Aorimn/dislocker.git
cd dislocker
cmake .
sudo make install

Now you can start using dislocker. It works fine.
