comment How do I know the password for my encrypted home directory?

comment How do I know the password for my encrypted home directory?
@CarlosL. no, you are not angering me at all, I just have 5 hours to kill, but try it without the arguments, or ensure you have the correct password when the command prompts you. Also, does installing Java work? The logon password isn't shown at all(not even asterisks) by design.

@CarlosL. The logon password will NOT be shown., Still type it and press enter. Also, see edits to answer for the correct command(apologies for error at first).

@irrationalJohn my old post disappeared, but we're not trying to install GRUB to the OP's home directory, we're using it as a temporary mount point.
