I just released GEncfsM 1.8.8. While this is mainly a small update containing the usual language-updates, it also adds the option to disable filename-encryption when creating new stashes. This is a feature that was requested for quite some time now, so I hope it will be useful. Simply click on the small button with the […]

Thanks to the generous donors I am able to proudly annouce a new feature that is nice to have when you use lots of stashes: stash groups. What are stash groups? Because a picture is still worth a thousand words, please take a look at this screenshot: As you can see, stash groups allow you […]

Gnome Encfs Manager 1.8.3 offers two really nice usability improvements (among the usual upgrades and fixes): The unified create and import dialog Until now you had to know beforehand whether a folder or drive is encrypted when you wanted to create or import it. That was actually kind of stupid. It just doesn’t make sense […]

About I already wrote about the usage of file managers regarding encrypted folders in the former post “Some things you should be aware of when working with encrypted folders”. I just can’t recommend to open encrypted folders with your usual tools unless you really trust them to protect your privacy. What I do since many […]

Gnome Encfs Manager 1.8 introduced quite a lot of changes under-the-hood, that made it more responsive and a lot more efficient if you have lots of stashes (30+). Thanks to some humble donors I even found the motivation to add some extra-juicy stuff :-) But the most significant addition is the ability to almost completely […]

Anything is better than no encryption at all Even though I consider the following points quite important, they really are just things you should be aware of. For example, I certainly wouldn’t have encrypted all my devices if I had to enter my password each time or even click some additional button. The Gnome Encfs […]

About The Open Build Service (OBS) is a really amazing tool to build packages for various Linux distributions. The only problem is that its documentation lies all over the place and you don’t really find a good starting point. I think I understand the basic concept now after packaging the Gnome Encfs Manager for openSUSE, […]

Update: This article is kind of obsolete because I now officially provide Arch packages here and because the appindicator dependency is now optional. Installing the dependencies To build GEncfsM on Arch, you have to build the following libraries from source because they are not in the repositories (yet?): libappindicator3 (depends on libindicator3) libdbusmenu-gtk3 (depends on […]

I decided to push the version to 1.7 with the newest set of patches for GEncfsM because some of the changes are quite significant for users of “legacy” notification areas (in comparison to Ubuntu’s AppIndicator) and because the 1.6 release got some nice improvements / bug-fixes since it has been released. I have seen some […]
