Hi fellow bitcoiners,
everyone's telling you to encrypt your wallet these days (with good reason!) and with tools like FreeOTFE for Windows/Mac users that's easy to do. More experienced Unix/Linux users will probably resort to dm-crypt/cryptsetup encrypted volumes.
What's been missing is a less techy tutorial for the Linux user who wants an easy setup with GUI password dialogs and no need to fire up terminals every now and then.
If that sounds like you, you're the audience I wrote this HowTo for: http://bitcoin.blog.com/2011/07/17/linux-bitcoin-wallet-encryption/
Hope you'll find it useful, feedback much appreciated!
