Yesterday I did a fresh installation of Ubuntu 14.10 over Ubuntu 14.04 and now I am not able to decrypt my home folder. I had two separate partitions:
I formatted my
/ partition but kept my
/home partition. Now I am not able to log in to my account. I get following error:
signature not found in user keyring perhaps try the interactive 'ecryptfs-mount-private'.
When I try
ecryptfs-mount-private command, it tells me that my login passphrase is wrong. I am using my password as my login passphrase. I haven't changed my password for a long long time, and my current password is same as my old password. So I am not sure why it is not working. When I try
ecryptfs-verify -p command, it tells me that the configuration is invalid with error:
ERROR: Mount point [/home/$USER] is user's home ERROR: Configuration invalid
ecryptfs-verify -h doesn't give any error. What am I doing wrong?
I did save my mount passphrase as well but when I try to use it from live usb using
ecryptfs-recover-private, I get
success but the mounted directory is still encrypted.
