File encryption in Thunar

Postby DapperMe17 on Thu Jul 17, 2008 7:03 pm

Just looking for a simple "right click" method of encrypting & decrypting files in Thunar?

That would be a great feature in Gnome/Nautilus too, but until then I use Truecrypt, it's got to be the best.

I also use truecrypt for file encryption, it is not as simple as right clicking and then clicking encrypt, but it's not difficult to learn. Just create a container that you want your encrypted stuff in, and put it in there.
