Re: XPS 13 9370 Ubuntu full disk encryption

I followed the steps in michaelzap's post to reinstall ubuntu with FDE
on my brand new XPS 13 9380 as of yesterday. It did not work with the
latest version dell-recovery_1.62_all.deb: cryptsetup did not
recognize the passphrase 'eeee' after reboot. In the live installer I
could mount the encrypted volume alright with the same passphrase.
Following the recipe with the older version dell-recovery_1.60_all.deb
worked without problems. My keyboard has got US-English layout.

Re: XPS 13 9370 Ubuntu full disk encryption

Same here, I have a XPS 9380, I followed michaelzap's instructions, and it worked fine.

I was interested in trying out dell-recovery_1.61, for the feature of not requiring the "apt install" step -- but I see on github there is no prebuilt deb file for that version --  so I stuck to the original script.

1.61 had a typo, 1.62 is just 1.61 with that bug fixed.  You should be able to use 1.62.

Re: XPS 13 9370 Ubuntu full disk encryption

I managed to do this as well , but the gnome software center now shows a permanent progress indicator on the icon....

 

How do I remove this?

Hi Lemonjello

 

It doesn't work unfortunately.

Anyone else suggestions? Perhaps reinstall software center somehow? Or use a different version than the 1.60 deb that I have used?
