    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Well, PGP on my CentOS system installed itself so that if I right-click on a file in the file manager (konqueror) and select Actions, one of the options is to encrypt the file. Bingo! Have you looked in the XFCE file manager to see if you have something like that?

    You can add custom actions to the right-click menu in Thunar. Just open a Thunar window, and choose 'Edit'->'Configure custom actions'.
