    How to access my encrypted home folder with schroot?

    Hi,

    I created a chroot environment to run a 32-bit application on my 64-bit computer. However, my home folder is encrypted (encryptfs), and when I try to enter the new environment with schroot I receive warnings and am redirected to the /root folder.

    So my question is how can I access my home folder? I tried to change the mount point in /etc/schroot/mount-defaults by mounting /home/user/.Private in the /home/user folder but I then get a list of encrypted files.

    Many thanks for your suggestions!
