Description:

DEVELOPMENT OF KENCFS IS FINISHED
==================================
This is the latest version of KEncFS. KEncFS was born to QT4 and KDE4.
Today QT5 libraries and KDE5-Plasma are now so widespread and more parties reach me requests to make KEncFS compatible with the latest environment.

For this reason, I decided to suspend the development of KEncFS and begin a new project called KEncFS-Plasma, which, in his first public version (2.0.1) will be identical to the last version of KEncFS, but optimized for QT5 and KDE5 libraries -Plasma. For KEncFS-Plasma, please see https://www.linux-apps.com/p/1170068/.

What Is This?
=============
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.

INSTALL FROM SOURCE
=====================
Open a konsole into source dir and write

{2}gt; qmake-qt4
{2}gt; make
{2}gt; 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.

Is there a way to change the password for an existing encfs volume?

Hello, only today I read your message, sorry.
No, there isn't a way to change password of an existing encfs volume with KEncFS.... for now. Please try to do it manually. You can follow this guide: http://bredsaal.dk/how-to-change-encfs-password

If you do something like this:
https://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=97199

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?

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?

Report

felmur

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.

hello, please, check if you have a "uic-qt4" or "uic-qt5". I think that uic-qt4 is the right choice. So, if you have this, make a symbolic link in your /usr/bin for the uic reference.

On Archlinux (my OS), /usr/bin/uic is a symbolic link to a file named qtchooser, which select the proper developing version of Qt libs and then run uic-qt4 or uic-qt5.

I don't know LinuxMint, but I've found some references to "uic" problems on google. If you don't have one of uic-qt4 or uic-qt5, try to run sudo apt-get install libqt4-dev

Hi,

I just had the problem that encfs wouldn't mount because the destination directory wasn't empty. However, kencfs does not display the encfs error messages! Instead, it states that the password is wrong. This cost me a few fistfuls of hair!

Please update kencfs to include encfs error messages.

thanks,
sharcow

LOL, a few fistfuls of hair ... :-)

I'm working on a fix for this. Hope I can release new version in a few hours.

I've registered just to say that (assuming you have installed kdelibs-devel on Fedora 20 ) you have to edit the generated Makefile and add
-I/usr/include/kde4/ in the INCPATH, like
INCPATH = -I/usr/include/kde4/ [omissis]
and add -L/usr/lib64/kde4/devel (assuming you're on x86_64) in the LIBS path (or you'll hit a "cannot find {-lkdeui,-lkdecore} error) like
LIBS = $(SUBLIBS) -L/usr/lib64/kde4/devel [omissis]
I'll leave up to the mantainer how to fix this without manually edit the generated Makefile

mmmm... look here:

https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/kdelibs-devel/contents/

seems that Fedora kde includes for kwallet is located here:

/usr/include/kde4/KDE/KWallet/Wallet.

So the include problem can fix by adding "kde4/" before the include path specified in line 42 of mainwindow.cpp. Unfortunately, I think that different path for installed kdelibs could be generate other problems while linking.

So I think that the below kencfs.pro file can temporary solve the problems. Please, tell me if this works.

Thanks the last kencfs.pro worked fine. Do you plan to make it a little more easier to use, I have no idea what is filesystemID is, and bring it at par functionality a la Gnome EncFS Manager?

There were some minor errors nothing install blocking.
