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.
