Full disk encryption with KDE Neon

Mon Jan 11, 2021 11:05 am
I'm doing a fresh install of KDE Neon with neon-user-20210107-0944.iso

When installing Neon I do have a (new) option to encrypt the disk but in older installers I had the option to choose "Guided, use entire disk and setup encrypted LVM".
Like in this screenshot

In the newer installer when I use encryption and reboot I don't get a GUI decryption prompt like before and decryption takes ages after filling in my passphrase.
Probably this is due to GRUB encryption?
Other Distros like Ubuntu, Kubuntu etc still use the "old" way. Is there something I can do with Neon to get Guided, use entire disk and setup encrypted LVM back?

I've used a Ubuntu 20.04 Server installation after completing the minimal installation with LVM backed LukS Encyption I added the neon repos and installed KDE Neon successfully.

Thanks for your reply!
That indeed could be a workaround.
Though it would be great if KDE Neon itself would have the proper settings.
Could you post which repo's you've added and how?

Just tried the new build (neon-user-20210114-0946.iso) with the same result.

I really want to use KDE Neon but for me this is a showstopper. Pity! :'(
