KEncFS is a gui frontend for encfs. With KEncFS you can easily create, mount, umount and delete your encrypted filesystem.

Now it works in KDe4 and in KdePlasma5.

Use of KEncFS is very simple: to create a new encrypted filesystem you must create new or select two existent dirs, one directory to archive encrypted files and another directory to mount on the encrypted filesystem with encfs (a mountpoint). After this, you can select a conventional ID for your encrypted filesystem and then a password.

With KEncFS you can also manage your encrypted filesystem. You can browse, mount, umount, remove from list (not from disk) your encrypted filesystem, in easy way.

Open a konsole into source dir and write

$> qmake-qt4
$> make
$> sudo make install

Note: the automatic installation is done in the following directories:

/usr/bin/ for KEncFS itself
/usr/share/doc/kencfs-1.3 for this README
/usr/share/kde4/apps/kencfs/translations for .qm files of languages
/usr/share/applications/ for kencfs.desktop file

If you want to change some of those path, adjust qmake kencfs.pro file.

Note: KEncFS has nothing to do with programs with similar name (for example k-encfs), who carry out similar functions. This is a new program designed specifically for KDE4.

- KEnCFS is now in the Portage-tree for Gentoo! (25 sep 2011)

- KEncFS is now in the AUR for ArchLinux! (28 dec 2012)

KencFS asks for KDE wallet pwd even if it is not selected in config.

Fixed, thanks! Two small niggles:
1) There is an empty toolbar below "File"
2) Would it be possible to have a better tray icon, more in line with standard Plasma Breeze icon?

I had never noticed the empty toolbar below the menu. It must be a misprint of QtDesigner, so I eliminated. As for the icon, in one of many update of breeze, the "lock" icon default had disappeared, so I had replaced with another. Now I have recovered the original SVG icon breeze and I created a fixed icon for the application. Check version 1.6.2.

If you do something like this:

The you can have nice lock icons in dolphin. However, kencfs cannot mount anymore due to the fact that fusermount needs the nonempty options.

Can you add the possibility to add the
"-o nonempty"
option to the encfs command line?

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
