I'm trying to encrypt a folder, but the CryptKeeper icon doesn't show up in the tray. I'm not sure why. I've tried changing the whitlist to "all", but that didn't work. How do I get CryptKeeper to show up in the tray? Or, what would be an alternative to CryptKeeper?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave these specific reasons:

type the following comand
well it is listed and set...
Now reconfigure unity for that type
now some changes will happen in the screen and you will have your unity interface back in few seconds....... when you look at the systray you can find the Cryptkeeper icon.
(if crypt keeper was already present on your white list all you have to do is reconfiguring unity by typing above command) All the best.
(truecrypt is another encryption software)
I also request you to add the Tag Cryptkeeper and Crypt Keeper to your question
If you want to start the crypt keeper when you start your OS. add crypt keeper to startup applications.
