OS Ubuntu 12.04 / hardware Dell inspiron 3520. I inserted my installation disc to reinstall ubuntu 12.04, on my previous install I encrypted my home folder. The install failed, big surprise 0_0.
I have managed to log on to the ?server? My installation is the desktop version. I can log in to my user account with my user name and password, I can't open firefox, I can ping google etc, and I can use apt-get.
I have no GUI. I tried running a diagnostic scan and everything is fine, except my hard drive, which seems to me, because it is still encrypted. How can I remove encryption, so I can reinstall ubuntu, or restore the previously working version?
Warning to new users don't reinstall your operating system while your home folder is encrypted.
