Possible linux specific bug

Using Linux Mint 17.1, VeraCrypt 1.0f-1

Create a standard container and select Ext2/3/4 as the filesystem. Mount the container. Cannot write to the mounted container.

Using terminal, I notice that "./" in the container is a root owned file:
     4 drwxr-xr-x  7 root    root    4096 May 16 11:40 ./
So workaround is: use sudo chgrp / chown to change "./" to current user, write is now possible.

Is this the expected way for VeraCrypt or a bug?

Thanks for a fantastic program!

Hi,

Thank you for the nice words!

The latest version 1.0f-2 of VeraCrypt has been released on April 5th, and as noted on its Release Notes, a read-only issue was corrected on Linux.

Can you please install version 1.0f-2 and check again?

Cheers,
