I usually use my Linux Mint 15 installation on my PC. I have separate
/home is encrypted with ecryptfs, which I did not configure myself, I just ticked the "encrypt home" when installing Mint.
I have today installed Debian, with it's own
/-partition. I also chose the same
/home partition I use on Mint, because I want to share all files in
/home between the two. I was hoping that Debian would automatically recognize
/home as encrypted with ecryptfs and decrypt it for me with my user password. But it did not. When I log in on Debian I get this error message:
Could not update ICEauthority file /home/fridge/.ICEauthority.
My only option is to log out.
/etc/fstab entry in Mint does not mention
/home is just mounted as
ext4. That was my first thought, that it would mount in
How do I configure Debian to automatically decrypt
/home for me when I log in?
EDIT: I belive I misunderstood the problem! Today I started up Debian and instead of logging in through the greeter I pressed Ctrl+Alt+F2 and logged in through the command line. The
/home partition was decrypted! Apparently Debian does that for you like Mint. I tried
startx but encountered the same problem as I was logging in through the GUI
xauth: timeout in locking authority file /home/fridge/.Xauthority. Should I close this question now?
