Ok installed mint 13 and encrypted my home folder and
how do I set it up so it can be accessed from another os? I saw something about encrypt when I tried to access and it said not configured but I cant find anything in the apps on the mint 13 os to configure the folder

Re: Ok installed mint 13 and encrypted my home folder and
No , actually im quite familiar with linux and have been using ubuntu for years. I've just never used native disk encryption on a linux machine before and not familiar on how to configure it . this isnt truecrypt . I did it during install with whatever cinnamon uses to do it . and Im trying to transfer music n stuff from my ubuntu drive and it said when I tried to access my home folder for the transfer on mint encryption isnt configured . So I need to know how to set it up to be accessed from outside mint.

I assume there is a password or something or some interface ?

Where is the other OS? Vmware? Parallel install? Across network?

No it is ubuntu 12.10 I have on another harddrive connected to the mint machine via USB and the ubuntu drive can see the whole mint file system just cant access the home folder because of the encryption not being configured.

Check that makeuseof link. It tells you how to install the encrypted fs utils. Looks like you can set a passwd with it.

Yea , I actually did the encryption when I installed mint as an option but that did show me how to set the password . So it helped but now I just need to figure out how to interface the encryption from ubuntu to put the password in .

Doesn't the ubuntu volume just show up as a mounted partition? I would think you could just copy from one to another. Just would need to make sure the encrypted home folder got mounted. This might help.

I've never used one but think I might after this. The place I used to work implemented bitlocker on all laptops.

well since it's a bootable OS the whole file system shows up and you navigate into the home folder and instead of /joe and then my media it has these two files one is a readme and the other looks like the encryption system file but neither are executable although I didnt have the password set then but there was no interface just those 2 files

So you're talking about the usb ubuntu drive with your data on it, right? If so, it should just mount unless the home folder was encrypted too. In that case the other link might help.

Sounds like you need to mount the encrypted fs. try the other link.
