View Full Version : [ubuntu] Cryptkeeper problem

February 14th, 2010, 07:44 AM
My wife was using cryptkeeper fine, then she right-clicked the keys on the panel and did something, I'm not sure what. Anyway, the keys you click on to open the encrypted folder are gone and I can't figure out how to get them back. System monitor shows cryptkeeper running. I can kill it and re-start it, but the keys don't show on the panel. I'm running ubuntu 9.10.

Hit Alt+F2 and type "cryptkeeper" and hit enter to bring the Applet to the panel.

Alternatively, you can start it by going to : Applications -> System Tools -> Cryptkeeper

If this doesn't work, you can try uninstalling and reinstalling Cryptkeeper

$ sudo apt-get remove cryptkeeper && apt-get install cryptkeeper Your setting will be preserved.
If this happens often, it might be due to a bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/cryptkeeper/+bug/201348
