comment Drive Encryption - Situation after reinstall/upgrade?
Just to clarify, do you want /home on its own partition formatted and encrypted using dm-crypt, or do you want to use Ubuntu's native Encrypted Home Directory feature? If the latter, its just a matter of clicking the checkbox in the graphical desktop installer.

I was just about to chime in and recommend ecryptfs-recover-private. That's definitely the right way to go!

comment ecryptfs on too-small harddrive - how to add links into the encryption?
Good point. It is a little hidden. I'll put together a detailed blog post about it (which is generally how I introduce new features to eCryptfs), and link to it back here. Thanks for the feedback!
