Ubuntu :: How To Permanently Decrypt Home Folder

May 23, 2011

I chose the option to encrypt my home folder during installation, but I don't want it encrypted anymore since that makes it impossible to access any files in my home folder unless I'm logged in as that user.

I'm really hoping to avoid reinstalling from scratch just to fix this. Anyone know how to do it?

BTW, it's Ubuntu Server 11.04 32-bit.

Feb 11, 2010

I have just installed Ubuntu Jaunty (I do not like Karmic, please don't try to make me upgrade) and after installing all my programs I realized I did not encrypt my home directory.

I know it's very simple to do this during the installation but I can't seem to find an option to do it after it.

Is there a way to do this?

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:

Ubuntu Security :: Small Portable Encrypt/decrypt Programme ?

Mar 31, 2011

I was wondering if any free, small, portable, cross platform programme exists for encrypting/decrpyitng simple txt files?

I know a couple of small ones for windows systems (nosee, dscrypt) but i wonder if there is any i could use on both linux and windows OS. the idea is to be able to carry it on USB key and the programme (or probably there will have to be 2 versions of it) would run either on windows or linux os and i could decrypt and encrypt the file if i needed to. no matter on what system i plug the USB key to.

General :: Could Not Make Folder /home/theif519/.local/share/Trash

Jun 5, 2011

After removing GDM, XFCE4, and the crap-load of dependencies that came with it, something must have gone wrong. I can not place items nor delete items any more. How do I fix this problem of mine? I'm using KDE at the moment.


Could not make folder /home/theif519/.local/share/Trash

Deletion of files is necessary. I have installed libtrash hoping it'd work, but it didn't, I even did chmod 755 like it suggested I do. What do I do?

I have one computer with windows and one with ubuntu. I have an external drive (FAT32) with files taken from an NTFS (mp3s and such) and I would like to put them and use them on an ext4 ubuntu platform. Can I make a partition of the /home folder NTFS and the system ext4 and function properly? I do have configuration files in the /home folder since Im building a domain controller that utilizes samba on ubuntu: would I be better off using a dual boot with windows/ubuntu and placing the files on the Windows partition? what is my best option?>

Debian :: Share Home Among Distributions - Store Files All In "/home" Folder Of Extended Ubuntu Partition

May 1, 2011

Installed Ubuntu along with Debian on my Notebook and use Grub Manager to choose between them on startup. Since i like Debian now a lot (in past days it was a very hard system to handle, but there has been some progress i noticed), i have to change some things (want Debian as main system now) For Ubuntu i have: (was meant to be main system on Notebook) "/", "/home" and a "swap" partition, but since i am now going to use mainly Debian, i wanted to store my files all in the "/home"-folder of my extended Ubuntu partition (has much more space available) not in the "/home" folder of the Debian system. So i want both (Debian and Ubuntu) to use the same extended partition ("/home") which i created for Ubuntu to save their files like downloads, videos, and so on.

Security :: Encrypt Folder So It's Accessible To Cron?

Jan 5, 2011

I have a script that crond runs each night. The script pulls some sensitive files from an SFTP server and stores them in a folder on the local machine.I need to encrypt those files on the filesystem. Ideally, I could encrypt the folder they're stored in to require a password whenever the files are accessed. The problem is that then crond wouldn't be able to access the files. Using something like ecryptfs would allow the cron script to mount the encrypted storage by supplying the password, but now the keys to the kingdom are just sitting in a cron shell script.

Is there a good way to approach this? One thought I had was finding a tool that lets cron encrypt the files using a public key, then require a password to decrypt them (silently using the password to access the related private key)I don't want too much complexity on the decryption side, because I will have relatively non-tech people needing to access those files occasionally.
