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?
It is a bug.
Here is the bug report:
And a work around:
Basically you run the following command :
gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist "['all']"
See the link for a more detailed explanation and an graphical solution.
This was tricky, I use 12.04 and gnome-classic. I had to use "add to panel" and then select "Notification Area". I did also use the
gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist "['JavaEmbeddedFrame', 'Mumble', 'Wine', 'Skype', 'hp-systray', 'cryptkeeper']"
In order for the icon to appear!
ok, Let us Solve this........ As a first step, let us check what are the white listed apps. for that open the terminal (cntrl+alt+T) then type:
gsettings get com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist
This will display the whitelisted apps. suppose it be
['JavaEmbeddedFrame', 'Wine', 'scp-dbus-service', 'Update-notifier', 'desura'] that is crypt keeper is not listed......... So all you have to do is list the crypt keeper and update unity..... for listing the crypt keeper
type the following comand
gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist "['JavaEmbeddedFrame', 'Wine', 'scp-dbus-service', 'Update-notifier', 'desura', 'cryptkeeper']"
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.
Try this one - worked for me in 12.04! [look at the "work around" I added to bug this morning]

Workaround: follow instructions at: http://www.ubuntuvibes.com/2012/04/things-to-do-after-installing-ubuntu.html [copied below] If you want to add support for Systray or Notification Area which has been disabled in Unity, install and launch dconf-editor from Ubuntu Software Center. Now to enable it just add an extra string 'all' under Desktop > Unity > Panel as shown in screenshot below (requires a logout to work). To revert, just click on 'Set to Default'.
