  1. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    I didn't get this problem during my tests, so I can't comment on what's happening with you. Unless there is a clash between VeraCrypt and Grub? I've never used VeraCrypt for an operating system, so I...

    That's interesting. Default Ubuntu updates automatically remove older kernels, so it should have been dealt with.

    Thanks for posting the solution. How large is your /boot partition? Ideally, it should be at least 500Mb (˝Gb).
  4. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    @metal450 — Thank you for this! I've included your page in the notes. If only Canonical took encryption seriously, it would save all this hassle!
  5. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    Yet another alternative, which looks promising. If you try it, please report back on this alternative how-to by Tj. I have also added this to the first post.
  6. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    Jernej Jakob has created instructions to convert an unencrypted installation to an encrypted one. I have not tested it, but Jernej says that it works on Ubuntu. I have amended the first post to...
  7. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    For some reason, Ubuntu Forums frequently fails to notify me of new posts, so sorry that I'm responding only now.

    I am feeling somewhat disillusioned, because every time that this issue is raised...
  8. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    Nice idea, but I wouldn't know how to do that. Also, as Canonical is a private company based in the UK, they can just ignore petitions, and it's not possible to put shareholder pressure on them.

    The main document lists four bug reports under Important Notes > Bug requests. You can vote for the reports. For each report:


    Go to the bug report.
    Log in (top-right corner) if not already...
  10. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    I don't know. I created this guide after frustration with the lack of progress from Canonical, by following the advice of several internet-based sources. I'm not really a technical person, so much of...
  11. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    @elgo2 — First, which version of Ubuntu are you using? This system has been tested on 18.04 and I don't know if it will work on later versions (it should, but I can't guarantee that).

    Second, have...
  12. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    Thanks for kind words and your suggestion. I like your suggestion. I've also bolded the names in the instructions.

    I have a feeling that these instructions won't work on 20.04 (the next LTS). I do...
  13. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    Sorry for not replying to messages earlier. For some reason, Ubuntu Forums doesn't send me notifications to this specific thread until weeks afterwards.

    Thank you NovHak, blaxpot and raif for your...
  14. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    Sorry, I don't think that the site provides such an option. You can use your browser to "Print" as a PDF, but it works only one webpage at a time, so you'd have to choose which pages to save. You can...

    Hello Andrew

    Does this mean that you want to create a separate system on your removable drive only? In other words, your removable drive is a system on its own, completely distinct from what's on...
  16. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    That's interesting, Franz.

    VeraCrypt is an excellent product, but I've never used it to encrypt an operating system. What would happen, I wonder, if you were to use VeraCrypt to encrypt Windows...
  17. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    @yrn2 Thank you for the update and your feedback.

    I suggest that you do not upgrade from 18.04 to 19.04. I say this because Canonical treats 18.04 as LTS (long-term support), meaning that...

    @yrn2

    When you get that error with the script, please would you:


    Press Ctrl+C to terminate the script.
    Enter the following command into the terminal.
    sudo fdisk --list /dev/nvme0n1
    Look...
  19. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    Hello yrn2

    I don't know if it's because of 19.04 instead of 18.04. The other thing is that Canonical has fixed a bug regarding booting in secure mode, and I don't know if that will affect the...
  20. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    They need to be loaded exactly as explained in the instructions.

    Unfortunately, all you've said is "with no success", which doesn't give us any clue as to what the problem might be.

    I should...
  21. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    @dusf This system has not been tested with VeraCrypt.

    There is a significant problem in that every time Ubuntu releases a kernel update, it doesn't play nicely, and it overwrites Grub.
    That's why...
  22. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    @dusf Thank you for the update. In your previous post, you mentioned GPartEd being left open. To the best of my knowledge, that shouldn't have caused any problem.
  23. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    You should always stick to the LTS versions if you can't afford to experiment.

    All even-numbered .04 releases are LTS, so this would include 16.04, 18.04, 20.04, and so forth. These are the ones...
  24. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    Sorry, no, my guide is for 18.04 LTS.

    EDIT: I think that I misread your post. But the guide is untested on 18.10.
  25. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    I presume that you installed Ubuntu 18.04. This is not something that I've seen, sorry. I suggest that you post a new thread, with a screenshot, in the forum Desktop Environments.
