I accidentally removed my ecryptfs-utils package using sudo remove ecryptfs-utils. Is there any way I could regain access to the home directory?
When I try to log in now I just get looped back to the login screen. I can open a tty terminal and all it says in the home directory is: Access-Your-Private-Data.desktop and README.txt
The README.txt file says:
"THIS DIRECTORY HAS BEEN UNMOUNTED TO PROTECT YOUR DATA
From the graphical desktop, click on:
"Access Your Private Data"
From the command line, run:
I'm using Ubuntu 16.10.
Update: I tried to copy the ecryptfs files from /usr/share and /usr/bin on another machine and that didn't work. (I think I got some password incorrect errors). However, that machine was running Raspbian. I wasn't able to install from tty by downloading ecryptfs-utils for some reason, got some IP's not found errors, although the Internet connection seems to work otherwise.
