Description:


If you have a notebook, or personal data on your computer, you really need this application.
Encfs is meant to provide security against off-line attacks; ie your notebook is stolen, your backups are stolen. K-EncFS is a frontend to the EncFS encrypting utility.

K-EncFS has the following dependencies:

* python (>=2.3.5)
* python-qt3 (pyQt, >=3.15)
* python-KDE (pyKDE, tested version: 3.11.3)

* EncFS (tested versions: 1.2.4, 1.3.1) and its dependencies:
* FUSE (tested version: 2.6.1)
* RLog (a C++ logging library, tested versions: 1.3.6, 1.3.7)
* OpenSSL (versions 0.9.6, 0.9.7 and 0.9.8 have been tested.)

Visit the following home pages to download these dependencies:
http://arg0.net/encfs or http://encfs.sourceforge.net/
http://fuse.sourceforge.net/
http://arg0.net/wiki/rlog
http://www.openssl.org/

NOTE for Debian users: These utilities are included in Debian. You need not download and compile anything. Do not remove the line inserting fuse from the file /etc/modules! If you use Ubuntu, it must work from Dapper (it has not been tested).


NOTE for openSuSE 10.2 users: Just install encfs with its dependencies! Do not remove the line inserting fuse from the file /etc/modules! If you enter the wrong password, only a short notification will appear in the "Messages" box. It is because of a bug in your distribution packages.

Use the INSTALL and UNINSTALL scripts if the enclosed packages are not match to your system!
If kde-config fails to work, edit the line 23 of the INSTALL and the line 15 of the UNINSTALL file. The variable KDEINSTPREFIX is the installation directory of KDE, e.g. KDEINSTPREFIX="/opt/kde3" or KDEINSTPREFIX="/opt/kde3.5".

If you want to migrate from kencfs to kencfs2, copy the content of the folder pops-up with kencfs to the folder pops-up with kencfs2. Do not move the encrypted folder! The path is a parameter of the encryption method.

Please do a comprehensive test before using this encryption utility!

From the version 2.1, K-EncFS can mount the encrypted file system during KDE startup, so the previous tastks can be restored by KDE. (For more info read the file /usr/local/lib/kencfs2/startkde/readme.startkde)
A known problem if you patch the startkde script:
On SuSE 10.3, the startups screen waits about 1 min. if you use the default splash screen. You can press the left mouse button, or you can choose another splash screen.

NOTE: There are two versions of K-EncFS: kencfs and kencfs2. You can use them simultaneously. Only kencfs2 will be maintained.


Changelog for version 1.1

- Generic install and uninstall scripts were added.
- Tooltips.
- Improved error messages.

it is a nice looking utility (especially as I am using encfs on my laptop), but - if it is not too hard - can you add a control weather the FUSE is compiled into the kernel (and thus will not be found by parsing lsmod output) or provide a configuration option for stating that it is.

I never compiled fuse module, because both of my test system installs with it.
The fuse module is not only for encfs, but for several other utilities like ntfs-3g (rw for NTFS) or the whole distro could be based on it. Compilation of fuse is not enough. It must be tested and then the applications also must be tested. The safe is to use a version tested by your distrubution stuff.
So I consider fuse as a dependence.
What kind of linux is on your laptop computer? Is the fuse module a part of the kernel?

I am running Gentoo, thus having customized kernel. And up until now I have fuse compiled into the kernel, not as a module. Thus lsmod will not show the module loaded, and K-EncFS fails (while it shouldn't as having fuse compiled into the kernel is a perfectly viable option and all of the functionality is present).

It really is not a problem for me, as I can comment the checks out from your code or recompile the kernel with fuse as a module, but in general it might be a good idea, to check if the functionality of fuse kernel module is available, and not if it is compiled as a module and the module is loaded (which works under most of the popular distributions at the moment, but this is not guaranteed to remain so for the future).

Thumbs up for now, this is just something to keep in mind in the future development.

 source code

Hi

Looks like a nice app. Any chance of getting the source code so I can compile it on 64-bit gentoo?

Cheers

Dave

You need not to compile it. It is an architecture independent python qt3/KDE application. The "source" is in the /usr/local/lib/kencfs directory and it "compiles" by the runtime of pyQt/KDE. Please, see the dependences before installing it! If the pyQt/KDE library is not broken for your distro, it will work also on 64!

 can't run on Sabayon

 
 by davepb on: Mar 10 2007
 
Score 50%

Great program. I had it running in 32-bit mepis.
However, I usually use 64-bit sabayonlinux and fuse is built in to the kernel and not as a separate module. Every time I try to start the app it says that it can't load the fuse module. If I run "encfs" on its own it doesn't come up with this error message.

I don't know if you can help me and I really want to use this program and spread it around to all my friends.

btw: I've tried to compile fuse as a kernel module but each time I try to add it using modprobe it gives an error of "device or resource busy".

I hope you can help.

Cheers

Dave

I think, fuse will be a base service of the kernel, so will not be compiled as a module. Now, it is a kernel module on most of the distribution. So, I have to make an additional package. Is your distro rpm based?

You can use untill I upload the new version in this way:
Drag the K-EncFS from the K-menu and choose "copy"! Edit the command field, alter it from kencfs to:
python /usr/local/lib/kencfs/kencfs.py
Although, you cannot use the "Start" with KDE" function.
NOTE: first time, after installation K-Encfs must be started from the K-menu to do the basic tasks for every user!
Then, do the modifications above!

Please, spread it around to all your friends after you tested it (e.g. the python library is broken for suse) and I upload the new version!

Hi

I kind of worked. I've created the encrypted folder but when I enter the password to mount it I get this error message:
"fusermount: failed to access mountpoint /home/dave/.kde3.5/share/apps/kencfs/encrypted: Permission denied
fuse failed. Common problems:
- fuse kernel module not installed (modprobe fuse)
- invalid options -- see usage message"

btw: SabayonLinux (Based on Gentoo) uses the portage package system. It compiles everything from source files and rarely uses binary packages.

Cheers

Dave

I see another problem.
Your distributions is completely different than the others. I have to make another package, but you should test it. What package of K-Enzip is istalled on your system now: Deb, rpm or tgz version?

I will modify the code in a few days.

 fusermount utility

Hi,

I'm running on Kubuntu 6.10, installed encfs and then Kencfs. Installation appeared to be OK, but on starting Kencfs I get the error message that "The fusermount utility is missing. Please install it before!"

I checked adept but cannot find anything remotely like it (installed all items with "fuse") and am not sure what to do next.

Any help out there?

 Change delete option

Hi

I'm successfully using k-encfs version 2 on SabayonLinux and everything is running ok. I was just wandering if you could as an option to the "Delete" button to ask "Are you sure?"

I know I shouldn't press the delete button but I thought I would for a test and it just deletes everything without asking you.

I did have everything backed up before I done this test ;)

Just thing it would be a cool option to add just in case some one pressed it by mistake.

Cheers

 Usability

Hi,
it is great that gui for encfs and kde exists.

It would be great if you consider changing the functionality a bit to cover the following topics:

x possibility to select the encfs root directory (when creating or for mounting an existing encfs dir) and the mount point.

x keep "favourite" mounts in bookmarks and offer to mount them all or individually

I have various encfs rootdirs - personal one and another, which is shared with other users of the desktop computer.

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.
