So I have an encrypted home directory, set up during install on a server running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I attempted to use
screen in order to run a script that accesses the data in my home directory after closing my ssh connection to this server, but ran into errors seemingly stemming from disk access.
Is this because leaving
screen running doesn't constitue staying logged in to the machine, and thus the files in my home directory will be unreachable by any program using screen due to it being unmounted and thus not decrypted? (And is it thus akin to running a
cron job that uses encrypted files?).
If this hypothesis is true, what can I do to address this?
