Description:

This script will graphically prompt you for your password, and then mount an encrypted loop device.

It will work from the shell, or you may use it as the mount command in KDiskFree. It will not, as of yet, work with a desktop device icon.

Patches welcome.

Hi, this prog is verry useful 4 "Desktop only" user, but there is no error handling. If the PW is wrong, there is no kdialog information about this.
A small "success" popup can fix this :-)
thnx

Great stuff. Of course, using it from a desktop icon would be cool.

What about a control center module to create crypted lopp device containers, e.g. by checking the current kernel's abilities and let the user configure a loop back file?

Thanks.

Instructions for using it from a desktop icon are in the script (as of v0.2).

A KCM module probably wouldn't work very well. This is probably better done as a separate application, perhaps integrated with Konqi.

I used yast to make my crypt file loop device.
