XFCE and ecryptfs-utils issue.

I use eCryptfs to encrypting a home directory. After upgrade the ecryptfs-utils package to 103 version. I’m not able to log into XFC using a LightDM, the unlock doesn’t work. The LightDM runs in the loop and displays a login screen
again and again. So, the solution is add the following:

auth optional pam_ecryptfs.so unwrap
password optional pam_ecryptfs.so
session optional pam_ecryptfs.so unwrap

to the /etc/pam.d/lightdm file, or:

common-auth-pc, common-session-pc and common-password-pc files into the /etc/pam.d directory

or using:

pam-config -a --ecryptfs should add it automatically to the proper common-* files.

By the way, the bug was fixed after a few hours by openSUSE maintainer 🙂
