Decryption to temporary storage / edit / auto re-encryption
I've ported almost everything over to Linux now, but there are a few areas where I still have to use a Windows VM. One of these is the use of the Windows software AxCrypt in order to temporarily decrypt and edit the unencrypted file with automatic re-encryption once finished.
It works as follows. When you double click on an encrypted file, AxCrypt decrypts the file to temporary storage and automatically launches the application that handles the file type (e.g. text editor, Libre Office, AbiWord) to open the unencrypted file. Once you close the application, AxCrypt then automatically re-encrypts the amended file in place of the original file, without the need to re-enter the encryption password. This is extremely useful.
Is there any way to do similar in Linux? AxCrypt does provide a beta Linux variant but it doesn't appear to work on my setup (Mint KDE 17.2).
