I want to ask you if it is there any option in manjaro desktop or if not what kind of application to install for setting passwords in files or folders?
A question many would ask is:
what is it that you want to achieve, in the end?
… a password protected folder or file?
… an directory or singe files that is/are encrypted?
… is it important to hide the fact that something is even encrypted/holds some information?
many ways to do what you want
what do you want?
For FDE, see: dm-crypt/Encrypting an entire system - ArchWiki
Full disk encryption you’d probably want to set up while installing the system though. I guess calmares (the installer that is being used in Manjaro) does allow you to do this.
I ve installed gocryptfs! First i installed the command package and for last i installed the gocryptfs-ui package but it shows me this! I installed and the ui one package because i dont have always time to type commands!
*And maybe someone can help me with it a little?
Well, the message pretty much tells you what to do.
I’d recommend to read a bit how gocryptfs works: Quickstart - gocryptfs
There is also AUR (en) - cryptor
Might be easier to use.
I think (I did not yet use that one)
that it is similar to ecryptfs (or encfs)
There is a directory where your encrypted files live
and there is a directory through which you can access them
… where the decrypted content will be mounted to, on access, once it is decrypted
The message tells you what to do - create that directory.
It’s probably not a good idea to post screenshots of your encryption keys on the internet though
Its just the master key!!
I suggest to not post the “master decryption keys”
If anyone reading this comes across your encrypted files
he/she can … easily … decrypt them now
since you posted the key
Delete that directory
and start again …
I see. Paper can burn. The internet does not forget.
At least you’ll never loose the key
I deleted the post!
Whatever thank you so much all of you!
You helped me a lot!
In KDE Plasma you can also make use of Vaults -
plasma-vault to protect sensitive files/folders …
