I'm trying to access my former home folder. When I run ecryptfs-setup-private, I am asked for my login passphrase which returns ERROR: Your login passphrase is incorrect. I have tried both, my login-pw for that account, and the home-folder pw Ubuntu gave me after installing it. What can I do?

I have the same problem. I thought it was because I changed my password with passwd but switching back to the old password doesn't solve the problem. I think that there is a keyring that stores some old passphrase, the problem is to find it! –  Avio Jul 8 '12 at 18:31
