At least on the default Manjaro build on Pinebook Pro, as of August 2020 Truecrypt is available in Add/Remove Software.

However it does not work out of the box due to the lack of a loop device needed to mount a Truecrypt volume.

First you need to install dracut

sudo pacman -Syu dracut

Configure loop

sudo echo "loop" >> /etc/modules-load.d/truecrypt.conf

sudo echo "options loop max_loop=8" >> /etc/modprobe.d/eightloop.conf

Make it permanent by rebuilding initrd

dracut --force

reboot
