System76 Developer Works on GNOME Encrypted Home Folder Support for Ubuntu 17.10

While not many were impressed by the new Pop theme that System76 wants to offer by default for their Ubuntu 17.10 system with GNOME desktop, some were thrilled to learn that KDE Connect will become a first class citizen to provide users with seamless notifications from their Android devices. And now you’ll also be surprised to find out that System76 plans on allowing the Home directory on new installs of Ubuntu 17.10 with the GNOME desktop environment to be encrypted during the creation of a new user, a functionality that appears to be implemented in the CreateUser D-bus call.
