ecryptfs
 
I was reading a ubuntu how-to on ecryptfs ( for my laptop) and was
interested in installing it on my Debian desktop. the ecryptfs-utils app
installed just fine, but there was no user program
(ecryptfs-setup-private ), per this doc:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EncryptedPrivateDirectory

to create the user encrypted folder. man ecryptfs doesn't show any
examples, so I am at a loss as to how to create a user encrypted folder,
or is that possible in Debian?

Hi Paul - I know nothing about ecryptfs, although it sounds interesting.
However, ecryptfs-setup-private *should* be there according to apt-file:

bob@trantor:~$ apt-file search ecryptfs-setup-private
ecryptfs-utils: /usr/bin/ecryptfs-setup-private
ecryptfs-utils: /usr/share/man/man1/ecryptfs-setup-private.1.gz

This is with lenny.

in this case it wasn't the MAN pages or google that helped. You got me
going inthe right direction by mentioning /usr/bin/ecrypt...
so I did an ls /usr/bin/ecrypt*
and noticed the correct files.

thanks !

$ dpkg -L ecryptfs-utils

or

$ dpkg -L ecryptfs-utils | grep man

is easier and more general for this purpose :-)

Anyway, this ecryptfs-utils seems interesting, thanks.
