Cryptkeeper is a Linux system tray applet that manages EncFS encrypted folders.
To build from source you will need:
- libgtk+ >= 2.8
- gconf 2.0
- encfs and fuse (I used fuse 2.6.3)
On ubuntu you can install encfs like this:
Then you must log off and back on again.
sudo aptitude install encfs
sudo echo "fuse" >> /etc/modules
sudo modprobe fuse
sudo addgroup <your username> fuse
All the latest stuff sits in the GIT repository, which is here: git://github.com/tomm/cryptkeeper.git
There are also periodic release tarballs: cryptkeeper-0.9.5.tar.gz
Changes from 0.9.4 to 0.9.5: Polish, Italian and Spanish translations. 'Allow other' mount option and improvement of password dialog (it lets you try again if you get it wrong...)
Changes from 0.9.3 to 0.9.4: Fixed a wee bug in dealing with mount points that are symbolic links.
Changes from 0.9.2 to 0.9.3: g++ 4.3 compile fix, turkish translation, importing of encfs >= 1.4.2 stashes support.
