Add new user with encrypted home folder in Ubuntu

By default, Ubuntu 12.04 does not allow you to add a new user with an encrypted home directory using the GUI user manager.

To add a user with encrypted home folder, do following:

Start up the terminal on your system as in this post http://www.askmeaboutlinux.com/?p=1904
$ sudo adduser –encrypt-home username <enter>

where username is the user ID of the user you want to create.
