    Change encrypted disk passphrase

    Hi Guys!

    So I installed 12.10.. and during the install I choose to encrypt the SSD.

    However my house mate likes to borrow my computer every now and again. And the password I choose is one he has trouble remembering..

    Is it possible to change it? So I could make it more memorable...

    Thanks..

    Code:
    cryptsetup luksChangeKey /dev/sdx
    where sdx is your encrypted partition.
