    Question Encrypt Existing Home Directories?

    Is there a way to encrypt existing home directories in lucid so that they will unlock with pam-encfs when the user logs in? Or must you do this when the directory is created?

    yes, you can do it after the fact, but it is a bit tricky. It is certainly easiest to configure encryption during the system installation.

    Here is a guide that should give you some idea of what is involved:
