ecryptfs-utils in my new
Ubuntu 18.04 LTS with the following command:
$ sudo apt install ecryptfs-utils
Then I set up a
Private directory as described in a wiki.archlinux documentation:
$ ecryptfs-setup-private --nopwcheck --noautomount
Then I made a recovery of all my data with the
Backups utility inside the Private directory.
Everything seemed to work fine but when I powered on my machine this morning I wasn't able to decrypt my Private directory:
$ ecryptfs-mount-private Enter your login passphrase: Inserted auth tok with sig [fd7bf4e96709610d] into the user session keyring mount: No such file or directory
ecryptfs failed to mount the Private directory. I read the similar topic ecryptfs-mount-private failure in Ubuntu 18.04: mount: No such file or directory but the solution provided by Gregor did not work for me. Any idea on how can I fix this issue?
This is the output of
$ keyctl show Session Keyring 129407649 --alswrv 1000 1000 keyring: _ses 779489152 ----s-rv 0 0 \_ user: invocation_id
The problem was reported as a bug at launchpad.net.
