    Truecrypt on Xubuntu

    Is anyone using truecrypt successfully on Xubuntu without having to install Nautilus?
    It installs & mounts ok, but everytime I try and open the volume I get the message, "No such file or directory:nautilus"
    Any help would be much appreciated.

    The volume should be mounted in the directory /media/tryuecrypt1. Simply navigate to it with Thunar.
    However, you can use this trick to "replace" nautilus with thunar: create a file called nautilus in /usr/bin with the following content:

    #!/bin/bash
    exec thunar $3
    exit 0

    Don't forget to make it executable!

    Could someone please provide a quick tutorial on how to create the file mentioned in post #2 and how to make it executable? All I really know how to do in terminal is cd around the file system.

    I actually think the way he suggested is a little inefficient. It would be a better idea to run this command:
    Code:
    sudo ln -s /usr/bin/thunar /usr/bin/nautilus
    It'll ask you for your user password, enter it and it will create a file called "/usr/bin/nautilus" that links to "/usr/bin/thunar".

    In case you still want to use the other method for whatever reason, then here's how:
    1: Open terminal
    2: Run "sudo gedit /usr/bin/nautilus" (replace gedit with whatever text editor Xubuntu uses)
    3: Copy+paste
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    exec thunar $3
    exit 0

    into it and save
    4: Run "sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/nautilus" (this is the command which makes something executable)

    Also, it would probably be a better idea to create a new thread asking how do do this, rather than resurect one from 2011.
