Feature request: Graphical method to mount selected drives within an
encrypted LVM (made by altrnate installer)
Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu:
Binary package hint: nautilus
This bug is a request for a graphical method to mount selected drives
within an encrypted LVM (made by alternate installer).
What currently happens with LVM is that it is shown as two drives. One
contains all the /boot file and is unprotected. The other (which is
larger) contains my root drive (/) and my swap which are both
Nautilus presents it as:
X.X GB Encrypted
You can see this on the side pane or on the places menu, however, you
cannot mount it from nautilus. This improvement should only affecting
a LVM disk when booting from another disk (not when it is itself
mounted and used as the system). More on that in Bug #441211 - Do not
show LUKS devices of internal mounted disks.
Currently what happens when clicking on the disk is the following
error message shows up:
Unable to mount X.X GB Encrypted
Error starting job: Failed to execute child process "cryptsetup" (No such
file or directory)
What I expect, or would like to happen:
When booting from a disk other then the one which is LVM setup (such as
another partition, usb, Live CD), you would be presented with X.X GB Encrypted.
Once you unlock the LVM, all the drives within it (with filesystems capable of
being mounted) would be presented in the nautilus. The user can then select
individual drives to mount them.
