You're opening a compressed file. Vim in vi-mode doesn't support reading from compressed files, since this functionality is provided by plugins and plugins aren't enabled when in vi-mode (when compatible is set). Instead, try: vim /usr/share/doc/xdemorse/examples/xdemorserc.example.gz It might be the case that you have only vim-tiny installed. Install a ...

The well-known Upstart event emitted when the desktop is shutting down is "desktop-end" (and there is also a corresponding "desktop-start").

I think your testing results for Xubuntu are the expected/desired behaviour; while a user is logged in (mounting/decrypting their home folder) then root can also see their files. Otherwise, when a user's logged out their files are supposed to remain encrypted/unmounted. Why that's not happening... I doubt it's a disk cache keeping the files visible after ...

It sounds like you're using dm-crypt/cryptsetup/LUKS on your whole partition, and also eCryptFS for your old home folder. Since you can already decrypt the whole partition ok, you just need to decrypt your home folder now. Easiest is probably using the ecryptfs-recover-private script, just run it (optionally telling it where your encrypted private directory ...

EDIT Oh, I just figured out, photorec is already able to restore ecryptfs files by default :-\ So forget about what I wrote before. All you need to do is to download photorec from http://www.cgsecurity.org, extract and run it wget http://www.cgsecurity.org/testdisk-7.0.linux26-x86_64.tar.bz2 tar xvjf testdisk-7.0.linux26-x86_64.tar.bz2 cd testdisk-7.0 ...

This is a common issue (bug report), the kernel driver module is not loaded as it is on the encripted drive, so you need to add it to the appropriate file. Boot Ubuntu using the ps/2 keyboard Open a terminal window, and run sudo nano /etc/initramfs-tools/modules Add ohci_pci on a new line at the bottom of the file. If you’re using an Apple keyboard, ...
