Hey recently installed Linux mint Fluxbox and im luvin the speed and minimal look it as :D . I noticed during the install there is no option to encrypt the home folder. :? What would be the easiest way of setting up a seperate encrypted /home partition? i will be grateful for any help given, thanks
Also i dont mind reinstalling Mint if i need to, as im only using a fresh install atm.

There is an Ububtu deb installer (compressed as tar.gz), in the download page, just choose your architecture, download, un-compress, and right-click the deb file to Install with Gdebi package installer . . :)
