Advanced Topics / accessing peppermint drive remotely
« on: September 12, 2014, 02:53:18 am »
When I installed Peppermint 4, I selected encrypt home folder. I thought it would be a simple matter of selecting "open as root" when i try to access the drive Peppermint is installed on from a live Peppermint cd,  but I haven't had that experience.
I have no trouble booting into my Peppermint install, it's just whenever I try to access it externally.

This is what I've tried after booting into the Peppermint CD:

Enter a passphrase to unlock the volume

When I enter the passphrase that I use to unclock the drive at bootup, I get the error message "The unlocked device does not have a recognizable file system on it."

Another error message:
Error opening directory '/media/peppermint/764357f5-b7a6-4504-b699-3643ee96d7e3/home/paul': Permission denied

When I click on the home folder of the drive I'm trying to access and then select open current folder as root, I get this icon: Access-Your-Private-Data  Nothing happens when I click on it.

The Readme text:


From the graphical desktop, click on:
 "Access Your Private Data"


From the command line, run:

In the terminal I cd to the drive I'm trying to access and get this when I enter ecryptfs-mount-private command

ERROR: Encrypted private directory is not setup properly

Any suggestions? Thank, Paul
