    Exclamation knoppix-data.aes to knoppix-data.img and vice versa...

    I'd like to copy all my data stored in knoppix-data.aes to a new knoppix-data.img (without aes password asked before mounting it)
    I need to prepare for my wife a knoppix USB with all my already installed application and setting but without using (my) password protected knoppix-data.aes

    I've tryed this:
    - create a new 2GB knoppix-data.img using:
    Code:
    dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda1/knoppix-data.img bs=1M count=2048
    losetup /dev/loop6 knoppix-data.img
    mkfs -t ext2 /dev/loop6
    mkdir /mnt/work
    mount /dev/loop6 /mnt/work
    cp -R /mnt-system/KNOPPIX-DATA/* /mnt/work
    umount /mnt/work && losetup -d /dev/loop6
    Then removing knoppix-data.aes and move new knoppix-data.img in KNOPPIX folder
    Boot ok but fails start x.org server and system show me only black screen.
    I heve to CTRL+ALT+F1 and so I can shutdown

    Something wrong ?
    Thanks for any help

    Did you boot Knoppix once more with cheatcode "knoppix noimage" before:
