Since a few weeks now, I noticed that, every time I log into my eOS machine via ssh, my private directory (~) is unmounted. Meaning there is nothing but two files, namely
README.txt, in my home.
To access my files like normal, I have to follow the instructions given in the readme, which is basically just executing
ecryptfs-mount-private. Funny thing though, when prompted to enter my "login keyphrase," I have to enter the password I had originally set for my account when I first installed eOS. When trying it with my current password, I just get asked to retry.
Why could that be? I honestly have no idea! Apart from installing some GUI apps and auto-mounting my Synology's network share on boot, I didn't mess with the system in any way. This is the tutorial I followed for mounting the network drive.
