Thread: Cannot find the configuration setting for mounting encrypted partitons

    Default Cannot find the configuration setting for mounting encrypted partitons

    I have an encrypted partition which shows up in Dolphin file browser.

    But as a non-root user, I cannot unlock and mount it. A message in Dolphin comes up saying that a policy prohibits this. As root, this unlocking of the encrypted partition goes normally.

    I cannot find the setting to change in KDE perhaps; does anybody know?

    Default Re: Cannot find the configuration setting for mounting encrypted partitons

    There is a bug ATM that prevents users from mounting even regular partitions that are not in /etc/fstab

    You can add partitions there, which may help, but I have never managed encrypted partitions myself.
    Do you know how to edit in a partition there?

    /etc/crypttab and fstab. But I don't think it is possible to mount them as user this way, because
    typically you use service rccrypto which has to be run as root. The mount action can be done as
    user, but the previous steps creating the devmap node, no, I don't think so. But try...
