http://ubuntuforums.org – Has anybody been successful using pam_usb (login authentication with a USB flash drive) with an encrypted home directory? I configured pam_usb and I was able to authenticate with a flash drive. However, when I restarted the computer, GDM no longer would log me in. Testing with an unencrypted home worked, revealing that the problem is the encrypted home. There is a directory ~/.pamusb/ where pam_usb stores the one-time pad and it seems it searches for this file upon login. Since my home in encrypted, it can't find it. I moved my ~/.pamusb/ to an unencrypted area and made a symbolic li (Hardware)
