Have cryptsetup installed by default in Whonix
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

That’s what I need and that’s what’s required in order to use the current GUI (the XFCE File Manager) with encrypted USBs. Without cryptsetup, an error regarding cryptsetup appears after entering the passphrase. A less technical user may assume the problem is with the passphrase rather than with a missing package.

postpone to Whonix 15 since cryptsetup has initramfs hooks (small chance of regressions)
