I've been encrypting and decrypting files and folder using nautilus and the seahorse-plugins package for the past few Ubuntu releases. It appears that seahorse-plugins is no longer available in oneiric's repos: see here, and here.

Has it been replaced by another tool?

Looking a bit further there is this bug report #796752 on Launchpad which seems to lay the blame on the transition to Gnome 3. Looks like it might be available in Precise.

is it going to be backported to oneiric? – Felipe Jun 4 '12 at 18:32
