When you have a
LUKS encrypted drive in your computer,
Nemo will show it under
Devices as a drive with a little lock on it.
When you click it, you need to enter a password. If you choose to
remember this password forever, it gets saved to your keyring. Next boot, clicking on the drive will immediately mount it.
How do I 'immediately mount' such a drive for which the passphrase is stored in the keyring, from the terminal? I want to have an autostart script that will mount my LUKS drive when I log in. I do not want to store my passphrase in the script, I want to use the passphrase from the keyring:
If you go to
Passwords And Keys, there's a bunch of nameless keys. In their properties you can find a description like
gvfs-luks-uuid=xxxxxxxxxxxx and also the password for that LUKS drive. This is what Ubuntu uses.
One option I thought about is
python-gnomekeyring but it can only get the keyname and password. I need what the GUI calls 'Technical Details' to get the password for a specific
uuid because the keyname is always empty.
