Hi,

I want to create a user with a encrypted home folder.
I tried "sudo adduser --encrypt-home username" but I get following error "adduser: Could not find program named `ecryptfs-setup-private' in $PATH".

I installed the cryptsetup package but without result.

Any ideas?

Thx,

Timmmy

You need ecryptfs-utils.
