IntroductionThe Gnome Encfs Manager (or short GEncfsM) is an easy to use manager and mounter for encfs stashes featuring per-stash configuration, Gnome Keyring support, a tray menu inspired by Cryptkeeper and lots of unique features. Whether you want to let it do things as simple as mounting a stash at startup, which is often used in conjunction with cloud-synced folders on services like Dropbox & Co., or whether you want to let it automatically mount and unmount your stashes on removeable drives such as USB-disks, SD-cards or even network-resources, GEncfsM is designed to do all the work for you.
InstallationTo install GEncfsM on Ubuntu and its derivatives, copy / paste the following line into a terminal and hit enter:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gencfsm && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y install gnome-encfs-manager
Packages for Debian, Fedora and openSUSE can be found here.
A quick instruction for building GEncfsM from source is available here.
Ubuntu 19.10 and later are currently not supported due to the removal of the old gnome keyring API
Info for Gnome Shell users: The icon sits in the messages bar which is accessable via Super+M
Setup instructions for Gnome Shell on Wayland can be found here
LicenseGEncfsM is free software released under the terms of the GPLv2 or later.
