  • 'Try or Install Lubuntu'
  • 'Lubuntu (safe graphics)'

    Trying to use the whole drive with encrypted LVM and encrypted home.

    It complained about existing swap (which is zram), so I had to turn it off with
    sudo swapoff -a
    and restart Ubiquity. It complained that partman failed:

    ubi-partman failed with exit code 141. Further information may be found in /var/log/syslog. Do you want to try ... There was also this message: An error occurred with the configuration of encrypted volumes.

    The installed system worked, but I had the same error as with the alternate iso file: there is no swap.

    I wiped the drive (wrote zeros to the first megabyte using mkusb (dd)) and made an MSDOS partition table using gparted.

    Then I tried again with Ubiquity, and succeeded: The installed system works, and there is swap :-)

    Summary: Encrypted LVM and encrypted home can be installed (if you also swap off, wipe [the first megabyte of] the internal drive and create a new partition table).
