Mount Encrypted FS from KDE
I have an encrypted partition (/dev/hdc2) mounted at /mnt/crypto
It is set up to allow users, so when I am in console, I type mount /mnt/crypto, and it mounts it
When I add this to my KDE desktop (rightclick - new - device - hard disk), and select the correct device (dev/hdc2), it will not allow me to mount it.
It tells me there is a error relating to the password.
I was wondering, is there any way to set this up to make it simply ask for my password (so I don't have to open a console every time)
This works with my other partitions (which I keep unmounted unless I need them)

I wonder if you could use the same or similar mechanism to kppp. This has a link in /usr/bin to something called consollehelper which takes care of the "asking for the password" bit ( the real kppp lives in /usr/sbin which is further down the search path).
I'm only thinking outloud here, so this may not work, or there may be a far simpler way of doing it.
Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS

In the article above you have it described how to automatically mount an encrypted partition upon log in to X. It may be helpful.
