Set up a few machines yesterday to test out some parallel code. Just for fun, I selected the "encrypt users files" option when setting up Ubuntu (10.10). I had never used the option in years past.
Now I'm finding it a pain. EG., ssh requires me to already have a login to the machine before it will let me log in w/o a password (eg., using id_rsa.pub and authorized_keys).
Similarly, I have no reason to encrypt files on these machines. They're just crunching numbers.
Is there an easy way to disable this? Or do I need to delete my original user and make another one (with all the su privelages, etc...) w/o an encrypted file system / home directory.
