Cant Change Encryption Options in Gnome-Disks

ru flag

When I try to change encryption options to automatically unencrypt a partition by going through the GUI entering the partition passphrase and the root password I get this error:

Failed to open file /etc/crypttab: No such file or directory (g-file-error-quark, 4)

How can I solve this? Before I reinstalled ubuntu, I was able to do this, although I remember getting this exact same error before, but I'm not sure what solved it. It might have been creating a crypttab file by 'touch /etc/crypttab' that solved the problem before. But it doesn't work now.

I had the same issue, just touch the file with this command

    sudo touch /etc/crypttab

Then I tried again and it worked.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
