Bug description:
  Binary package hint: nautilus

  nautilus asks for pass even though cryptsetup is not installed -
  should recommend install before

  cryptsetup should be a dependency of the ubuntu-desktop meta-package and/or to the following individual packages: 
  gnome-disk-utility
  nautilus

  my reasoning for this request is that both of these programs have
  disabled features which have to do with luks encrypted disks. These
  programs seemingly offer these options but unless cryptsetup is
  installed they will fail with an error. These programs should either
  recommend installation of cryptsetup (using gnome-app-install just
  like totem with codecs) before preforming the action, otherwise they
  should be set as dependencies to these packages.

  Steps to reproduce:

  Disk Utility (palimpsest): 
  -Insert disk and format disk, create a partition and encrypt underlaying device
  -It will ask for password but will fail if crypsetup is not installed

  Expected: 
  -Palimpsest should recommend the installation of crypsetup through gnome-app-install
  or
  -cryptsetup should be a dependency of gnome-disk-utility
  or
  -Feature should not be showen if cryptsetup is not installed


  Nautilus:
  -Insert LUKS encrypted disk into a fresh install of ubuntu (imagine you have no net access for a radius of 50km)
  -Nautilus asks for password, indicating a feature it cannot preform without cryptsetup
  -Nautilus fails with error stating that the child process crypsetup could not be found

  -Nautilus should recommend the installation of crypsetup through gnome-app-install
  or
  -cryptsetup should be a dependency of nautilus
  or
  -Feature (password dialog) should not be shown if cryptsetup is not installed
