GEncfsM 1.8.9 is quite an amazing update when comparing to 1.8.8 and has some really nice additions and lots of bug-fixes. It is now possible to save the password in the keyring when creating stashes and it allows persistent mount directories. Also does it now show a notification when un-mounting fails (if notify-send is installed), […]


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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


Update: This article is kind of obsolete because I now officially provide Debian 7.0 packages here. You still have to add yourself to the “fuse”-group to be able to use encfs though. If you want to use the Gnome Encfs Manager on Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE), you can either build it from source or […]


GEncfsM 1.6 is a rather heavy update especially directed towards power users. It is possible to run commands at specific times and you can now use arbitrary encfs /encfsctl / fusermount binaries. It is possible to change the mount base directory and the recognized encfs config files. I did lots of refinements in the create […]


The import dialog in GEncfsM 1.5.9 is now slightly smarter, because it will also accept some renamed encfs config files. Until now, it only accepted the standard “.encfs6.xml” file. The problem is, that some sync services need some kind of workaround, because they either rename hidden files or won’t sync them at all. Hence GEncfsM […]
