    Re: Re-open an old thread

    I don't mind if you just edit the thread to put a link there, instead of re-opening it, but it needs to be linked in that thread.

    I was looking for this solution a couple of years ago. Having now...

    If I create a new thread, then people will never find the solution, as the new thread is not the thread that appears at the top of Google. Re-opening the old thread will allow anybody searching for...

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu on MacBook Air 3,2

    It's not the lid, it happens when you suspend. I have mine set to just switch off the backlight when the lid is closed, and it's fine then. It only has that problem when resuming from suspend. I...
  7. Re: Howto: Easily encrypt individual folders

    If you do want to move/rename an encrypted folder, you have two options. Either edit the keyring information with gnome-encfs, run 'gnome-encfs --help' to work out how.

    Or, you can just emount it...
  8. Re: Howto: Easily encrypt individual folders

    Hmm, that is an issue. It should have copied all your files over to another folder first (named emount-temp-[random no.]). So, if that does happen you should be able to just copy the files back from...
  9. Re: Howto: Easily encrypt individual folders

    Ah, in that case it may be a limitation of my script. For now, if you go to System>Preferences>Passwords & Encryption Keys, you will find all the details are stored in a password keyring. If you make...
  10. Re: Howto: Easily encrypt individual folders

    Thanks, nice to know.

    Not sure what the problem is there, I would expect it's something to do with EncFS. Random speculation, but maybe it could be a limitation of the filesystem? I'm guessing...

    OK, still not working. It's generated a full xorg.conf file, but brightness is still not changing. The Device block now looks like this:

    Identifier "Device0"

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu on MacBook Air 3,2

    Hey guys, just updating the wiki for Narwhal, going through a clean install, many of the steps are no longer needed, as they work out of the box now. But, some steps seem to have changed.

  13. Re: Howto: Easily encrypt individual folders

    I don't believe there to be any problems with this, it's simply using an EncFS mount, so look at they're documentation for any limitations. Technically, you should be able to use EncFS directly to...
  14. Re: Howto: Easily encrypt individual folders

    What exactly do you mean you get no GUI? If you right-click on a folder, do you see emount and eumount under scripts? Do you mean that nothing happens after you click emount?

    I find that if...

    The first error occurs due to the line:

  16. Re: Howto: Easily encrypt individual folders

    21/3/2011 - Updated the scripts, so you no longer need to move around files. Simply right-click a folder and click emount, and it will encrypt your folder.
    26/3/2011 - Fixed a bug in the script if...
