#!, Ubuntu, etc. prompt me to enter a password when I insert a LUKS-encrypted USB drive. I formated the drive under Ubuntu and chose to encrypt the device.
I am familiar with cryptsetup, etc., but I don't know the parameters required to mount it manually. I'm running Debian netinstall sid with OpenBox at the moment.
I've installed Thunar, but that does not have the automount thing built-in it seems. What do I need to install/do to get the convenient popup password prompt when inserting a USB drive? I just realized this install does not even automount drives, so maybe this is more complicated than I thought?
Or alternatively, does anyone know the parameters required to mount an (Ubuntu-created) LUKS drive?

Partially solved. Command-line mount of LUKS encrypted drive:
$ sudo /sbin/cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdb1 TheName $ sudo mount /dev/mapper/TheName /mnt/point
I haven't tried this myself, but look at cryptmount in the repos. It seems to automate your commands above so that when you access the unmounted disk, it will just prompt for the passphrase and mount if for you (see the screenshot on their page for a quick example)
