I have installed encfs and the gnome encfs manager. I can select a folder to be encrypted, which is in a separate partition from /home, but seemingly cannot change the suggested mountpoint, which I do not want to be in /home/encfs/. Is this possible? Or do I have to create the mountpoint directory first?
Also, will files copied directly into the encrypted folder be automatically encrypted? And am I correct in that I need to mount the encrypted folder, and then view and/or edit the files at the specified mountpoint?
Their is very little documentation available for gnome encfs manager, and searching the forum did not help.
Figured out how to do this. Reinstalling the software helped.
FYI, I like and use encfs frequently but could not find a nice simple client. So I created my own which I have been using daily for many years now. See https://github.com/bulletmark/encfsui.
