Although this does not set the encrypted volume label, this is a good alternative that achieves the same result. Thanks! :-)

I'm pretty happy about the encryption side, I'm more worried about a process running in userland, running under my user privileges, accessing this plain text file, or any other important details in my account. Thanks!

Empathy is the new default IM in Ubuntu, but it's mxit protocol support is buggy (won't connect) so I use Pidgin for that reason. Another alternative is using a separate Jabber account just for IM, instead of my gmail account. Thanks for your response!

Point taken @Peter, I was worried the question is too subjective and they get closed too easily on the SO and SU exchange sites.

comment How can I hide directories without changing their names?
@jumpnett is correct, place .hidden in the same location as the files you want to hide, and add the file/directory names in the .hidden file, one per line. Works great!

comment With a launcher for a terminal application, how can I keep the terminal open after the program is complete?
To keep the default terminal 'when command exits' action, I suggest creating a new terminal profile, set it to stay open after a command exits, and pass gnome-terminal the --tab-with-profile=PROFILENAME option. You can have many profiles for different bahaviours this way :-)

Which terminal are you using, gnome-terminal?
