A short guide on how to install SecureCircle Agent on Ubuntu/Mint Linux machine

Download and Install

  • Download the installer for Linux. File will have an extension .run
  • Open the terminal and type these commands
  • Add privilege to execute this file
chmod +x fhfs.run
  • Download new package info
sudo apt update
  • Execute the installer and provide invitation ID and server address
sudo INVITATION_ID=yourinvitationid ./fhfs.run --tracker=dev.securecircle.io --no-root-overlay

Create a SecureCircle directory

  1. Create some directory to use with SecureCircle. All read/write/encrypt/decrypt/magic folder operations should happen below this
sudo bash -c "mkdir /opt/securecircle; chown username:users /opt/securecircle; chmod g+w /opt/securecircle"
  1. Configure the directory to fhfs overlay mount at boot
echo 'none /opt/securecircle fhfs rw,relatime,mount=/opt/securecircle 0 0' | sudo tee -a /etc/fstab
  1. Mount everything in filesystem table (fstab)
sudo mount -a

Now you can use /opt/securecircle as the main directory or use another directory while installing

Uninstall

sudo service fhagent stop
sudo apt remove securecircle
-----Manually delete fhfs fstab mount point---
