Automatic mount home on login

You need to create an encrypted physical volume with the same password that your login. Then install pam_mount from AUR and change the following lines. /etc/security/pam_mount.conf.xml

<cryptmount>bash -c "grep -q %(MNTPT) /etc/mtab || truecrypt --text --protect-hidden=no --keyfiles='' %(VOLUME) %(MNTPT)"</cryptmount>
<cryptumount>truecrypt -d</cryptumount>
<volume fstype="crypt" path="/dev/sdXX" mountpoint="/home" />

/etc/pam.d/{login,gdm,kdm,...}

auth optional pam_mount.so
session optional pam_mount.so

Note: The volume label can be especified per home (~/.pam_mount.conf.xml)

Outdated

Some of the information on this page is outdated since truecrypt 5.1, for example the steps to use ext3 as filesystem on the encrypted volume. I'd update it but am not sure if we should keep the present information as reference or replace it with the updated one. --chi 19:29, 2 May 2008 (EDT)

bashrc

Is there an error in Method 1 (Add a truecrypt group)? It says that some lines should be added to /etc/bash/bashrc. In my opinion it should say that these lines have to be added to each user's .bashrc. --Sandstorm 13:45, 1 June 2008 (EDT)

That file doesn't exist in my system, but I guess adding them to /etc/bash.bashrc should work, if people use bash. However, wouldn't it be most general if you put it in /etc/profile? --Unhammer 14:13, 12 March 2010 (EST)

GUI

What are the GUI options? (I found TCMount, but it's discontinued since it had security problems.)

Why the fuck does it separate into a gui and a cli version like normal people, where did the man page go? You cant even do truecrypt -l because it pops up a gui. Is this cruel and arbitrary and should it affect my trust in the software? It boggles the mind.Jasper1984 (talk) 18:55, 21 October 2012 (UTC)
