Sorry to hear about the situation, I personally have no experience at
all with encrypted drives as I have never used them. So what I am
doing instead is forwarding your email on to the Lubuntu team email
address (lubuntu-desktop@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx - for more information
check out the team launchpad site at
https://launchpad.net/~lubuntu-desktop so you can join up and follow
the topic) with your attachment so that someone else with more
experience in the issue might be able to assist you.


Lionel has detailed his experience in the attached PDF so if you can
please have a quick read (it's only a page or two) and try to help him
out with his encryption error that would really be appreciated. If you
can also please ensure you have both the list and Lionel's emails in
the "to" or "cc" field as I don't know if he is currently subscribed
to the list and may miss replies if not sent directly to him as well.

Thanks one and all and hopefully we can get this sorted.
