ecryptfs errors

Enter your login passphrase:
Inserted auth tok with sig [ee16d84] "into the user session keyring
mount: No such file or directory"


[  156.118113] ecryptfs_mount: kern_path() failed
[  156.118431] Reading sb failed; rc = [-2]
[  164.233055] traps: mate-notificati[3472] trap int3 ip:7f43d7002c13 sp:7fff162c6600 error:0
[  166.017061] ecryptfs_mount: kern_path() failed
[  166.017323] Reading sb failed; rc = [-2]

The reason for this is that you don't have the .Private directory for your user symlinked from /home/.ecryptfs/user/.Private to your home directory or .Private does not exist (common mistake when migrating ecryptfs data to another system).

Solution:

rsync -Phaz /home/.ecryptfs/yourusername/.Private ~
