Have cryptsetup installed by default in Whonix

I think it’s common enough. Handy when using encrypted USBs.

Perhaps also keepassx

Is that the only package you need for encrypted USBs or are you interested in a GUI?

@TNT_BOM_BOM please add this request on phabricator.

We have an old thread dedicated to which choice of passmanager to pick. Consensus seems to be out on this for now?


#6

That’s what I need and that’s what’s required in order to use the current GUI (the XFCE File Manager) with encrypted USBs. Without cryptsetup, an error regarding cryptsetup appears after entering the passphrase. A less technical user may assume the problem is with the passphrase rather than with a missing package.

OK should be simple to add in the next release. Meanwhile just install it manually.


#9

Should be installed by default on workstation and gateway. Reason for gateway: someone might attach an encrypted usb drive to the gateway (to restore config, backup or something) and expecting the same like in the workstation.

Which anon-meta-package would be a suitable for this cli package?

I’d add it to non-qubes-vm-enhancements-cli.

I’d add it to non-qubes-vm-enhancements-cli.

Not Qubes specific at all? No one would add a USB drive to a Qubes VM
directly?
