 +====== Thunar ======
 +===== Open disk image files read-write =====
  
 +Thunar seems to open disk images read-only by default. This makes sense for ISO-images and probably a bunch of other use cases, but not for image files created to be used with LUKS for additional security((In my case, the image file is on a encrypted home partition, but still encrypted (second) as it contains keys etc. I don't want to expose to the system all the time while my home partion is mounted.))
 +
 +The workaround is to configure a //custom action// in //Thunar// containing the command
 +
 +  udisksctl loop-setup -f %f
 +
 +__References__:​
 +
 +man udisksctl
