Ubuntu Security :: No Option To Encrypt/Sign Files On Pop-up Menu

May 16, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit. I created a PGP key pair using Applications|Accessories|Passwords and Encryption Keys. I used DSA El Gamal as the encryption type and a key strength of 2048 bits. However; when I right click on a file or folder I don't see the Encyrpt... and Sign options.

Ubuntu Security :: Encrypt With Right Click Safe?

Jul 13, 2011

I just found a neat way to encrypt a file in Ubuntu 10.04.

I right click on a file and select the Encrypt option. The program prompts me to "Choose Recipient" so I choose myself on the list. Then it prompts me to enter my passphrase.

Once all that's done I hit enter and it adds .pgp to the end of whatever file just encrypted. The same basic method is used to Sign the file.

Does it sound as though what I said is correct and that the file I wanted to encrypt was indeed encrypted?

Can anyone crack my files without the passphrase? I'm sure it depends on the complexity and length of the passphrase.

Ubuntu Security :: Right Click - Automatically Get The Encrypt Process To Delete The Un-encrypted File When It Makes The New Encrypted Copy?

Jan 5, 2010

I've just started using ubuntu one. However, some of the files I store on there are sensitive so I encrypt them using seahorse. Right click, encrypt etc etc. My question is, is there a way to automatically get the encrypt process to delete the un-encrypted file when it makes the new encrypted copy?

Ubuntu Security :: Encrypt Files Using The Keys - Generate ?

Sep 8, 2010

I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04. I love the passwords and keys application, but was somewhat surprised at the lack of a context menu in gnome to encrypt a file.

In general, I cannot find how to encrypt files using the keys I generate. Maybe I'm missing something? Probably, I just thought since Ubuntu comes with OOB key generation it would have OOB encryption capabilities.

I've read about seahorse and other ways to ADD encryption, I'm just wondering if ubuntu does it natively. It'd be a good idea to add to brainstorms, right click and encrypt.

Security :: Setup Vi To Automatically Encrypt/decrypt .pgp And .asc Files

Dec 17, 2010

I'm trying to setup vi to automatically encrypt/decrypt .pgp and .asc files. The encryption part works. If I "vi testfile.gpg" it will auto encrypt it on save.

However when I try and vi the encrypted file it does not prompt me for my pass phrase. I just get this:


Here's what I have in my ~/.vimrc file.


This is on gentoo linux if it makes any difference.

Security :: Encrypt Entire File System - Fedora 11 64bit?

Jul 11, 2009

I recently installed Fedora 11 64bit and I am curious about encrypting my entire file system for security purposes. I've been on Google for a while now and I keep finding info on how to encrypt a specific folder or home directories but nothing on the entire file system (or I'm missing something big here). It's hard for me to imagine that it isn't. If so, do I need to encrypt the partition my file system is on before installing it? What software should I use? There seems to be so many, it's difficult to keep them all straight.

After I adjust my slackware and rebooted I saw a strange "rectangle" on my desktop. Please, look at the screenshots below and tell me how I should solve this problem.

I can't move it. Right-click menu on a rectangle coincides with a right-click on desktop. It does not prevent, but very annoying.

Fedora :: Right-click On KDE Workspace For Apps Menu?

Mar 25, 2011

I've been mostly using XFCE for a long time, but I'm finally giving KDE4 a serious try. Overall I like it pretty well, but there's one thing I like in XFCE that I can't replicate in K: I want to be able to right-click on the desktop to bring up the full apps menu. On XFCE the default behaviour is that right-clicking anywhere on the desktop background (anywhere not on a window, basically) will bring up the full "Start" menu with all the app categories, preferences/settings, etc. (I put "Start" menu above in quotes because I know that's really Windows-specific terminology. So no need to give me crap about that, kids.) Right now, when I right-click on the desktop in K I get a small menu with Konsole, Run, Activities, and Desktop Settings. What I want to happen is a full launcher menu like I have on the panel.

Ubuntu :: When Click On "Places" Menu Brasero Keeps Launching - Can't View Files

Yesterday I burnt a couple of CD's with Brasero. Project completed successfully. But.. now if I try and open Nautilus and go to any of my folders under Places>Home/Music/Documents, in fact anywhere, it goes straight into Brasero and seems to think I have an uncompleted project. There is also a box open which promts me to rename/not rename for full Windows or Linux comaptabilty. As of right now I cant get rid of Brasero and get to any folders/files.

Fedora :: Right-click The Result Is The Automatic Selection Of The Option In The Context Menu?

Feb 23, 2011

I'm a Fedora user, and recently I switched from KDE to Gnome. Since then I'm experiencing a nerve-wracking problem when I use the right-click. Almost every time when I right-click the result is the automatic selection of the option in the context menu which is at the same level as the cursor. This happens more than 50% of the cases. Is that normal in Gnome or am I the only one that experiences this kind of problem?

Ubuntu Security :: Backup And Encrypt Using GPG

Jan 20, 2010

I'm currently writing a simple script which uses luckyBackup to backup my /home directory to /tmp. I then want to tar it, encrypt it with gpg and move it onto a usb stick. My question is that suppose my hard disk died and I needed to restore from this USB backup, would I still be able to decrypt the file given that I would have lost gpg keys etc when the disk died? (I would still know the passphrase though). Should I be backing up gpg files separately?
