Hello, world!

I enjoy using my experience to help others. That is why I am active at a number of other sites in the StackExchange network on topics that interest me.

valuable flair!

I'm something of a Swiss army knife both professionally and in private, able to juggle a wild variety of things at once. I've worked in every kind of business that uses software. I'm also very good with tools, both IT and mechanic. Whether you need software design or assembling some IKEA furniture, I'm your man for the job. I'm generally soft-spoken but driven by clear principles.

I'm a twin, I've lived in five countries, I speak four languages fluently and two more embarrassingly. Also, being a father routinely develops my patience which is useful for moderating on StackExchange too.

To learn more about me, see my Google+ profile.

comment Unwrapping passphrase and inserting into the user session keyring failed
@strapa - good idea! I did send a question on Launchpad but omitted this webpage. That might work!

That forum post refers to instructions that are no longer valid. The instruction webpage clearly states to use a newer tool instead, which is what I tried to use in the question above. The only difference is that I'm not booting off a USB "LiveCD" but running it locally, because the encrypted folder in question is not local but on an external disk.

comment Caps lock problem
I've often seen this behavior on USB keyboards when using the shift key (because the keyboard can't keep up with the user's typing rate) but that seems different from your case here.
