How to mount encrypted home directory?


I moved from ubuntu to suse leap. In ubuntu I had home directory encrypted. Now suse leap show no files in home directory but df -h tells me that 9GB is used on home partition. Therefore I guess that suse is not showing files that are encrypted. My question is that how do I access these files from ubuntu installation?

I’m pretty sure that Ubuntu uses “ecryptfs” for encrypted home directories.

Install “ecryptfs-utils”.

You might then need to run the command:

# pam-config -a --ecryptfs

Then see if your directory is visible on the next login. If not, post back to this thread and we can investigate further.

Thank you!
