    If you did no mistake you should have thses files:

    /home/<your username>/bin/zenity.askpass
    /home/<your username>/bin/mount.encrypted
    /home/<your username>/bin/umount.encrypted

    Hum... I just thought... I didn't mention to make the scripts executable...

    Type in a console:
    Code:
    $ chmod +x ~/bin/zenity.askpass ~/bin/mount.encrypted ~/bin/umount.encrypted

    Re: HOWTO: Encrypted directory with EncFS

    where you have "user name", you need to replace that with you actual user name.
    eg. my user name is khamsin, so it would like like on mine:

    encfs --idle=15 --extpass=/home/khamsin/bin/zenity.askpass /home/khamsin/.encrypted_dir/ /home/user name/unencrypted_dir/

    also, make sure that you have the directories created, ~/.encrypted_dir and ~/unencrypted_dir
    or you can replace the names with other folder names that you want to use.

    See how you go.

    Hello,Ahriman

    Yes i was not sure if it was some rule, that you had to use
    user name in place of my name on the forums or not.

    but yes i used my name and i also did
    creat, ~/.encrypted_dir and ~/unencrypted_dir

    i have no idea what is wrong going nut's here

    Re: HOWTO: Encrypted directory with EncFS

    Are you getting exactly the same error message as before? Also, what permissions are on the directories .encrypted_dir and unencrypted_dir ?

    Hi,Ahriman

    Thanks for gething back at me and to what you asked me yes.
    i am stell having the problem, but only when using the scripts
    when i goto Term it all works great. ????

    and both of them are drwxr-xr-x not sure if this is what you
    need from me or not.but it would be a plus to have the scripts work.

    Thank you
