Recently I wanted to install Trisquel 8 (with net install) on a librebooted X200s ThinkPad with full disk encryption. However, it is currently broken unfortunately. There is an error during the installation as found in this bug report: https://trisquel.info/en/issues/25533

Also, the current Libreboot guide for this is desperately out of date too: https://libreboot.org/docs/gnulinux/encrypted_trisquel.html The guide is only available for Trisquel 7, but it may well work for Trisquel 8 though. I know the Trisquel community is somewhat seperate from the Libreboot community, however I just thought it would be worth bringing this issue to the attention of this community too.

I'm interested in possibly running Trisquel, but I will likely avoid it if full disk encryption is not available.

Hopefully this will be fixed sometime soon.

You can wait they fix the bug or You can try to install Hyperbola:

I've seen Hyperbola, looks interesting but I'll be sticking with Debian testing (with main repos only) for now.

You can do the 'try trisquel without installing'
then install triquel within the desktop, and the GUI installer will encrypt the OS. Im not sure if its Full disk, but it encrypted 130 Gigs of my 150 gig HDD.

LibrebIobit is correct. You can install via the 'try trisquel' option, then selecting the 'install Trisquel' option. You can perform an encrypted install via the installer. This will be an encrypted install like any other GNU/Linux install.

What you can't do is encrypt the /boot too.

I'm currently running Debian with full encryption install and it's a nice set-up. As much as I really want to support Trisquel I can't wait or do some temporary install. I have lots of work to do and need a working system. It also made me worried about the potential speed a future broken system might be sorted. So I'm sticking with my long-term, familiar Debian. That's not to take anything away from Trisquel - it's a superb distro and I support it. It's just not ideal for me right now.

I'm pretty sure Trisquel only does /home encryption by default with the GUI installer.

If there is a full disk encryption option with GUI I'm not sure it actually works currently as I think someone on IRC tested it when I was trying to get Trisquel encrypted.

I've done this with manual partitioning:
Partition for /boot unencrypted (enough with 512MiB)
Partition for / encrypted

This is not «full disk encryption» but it's the widest one in an easy
way for GUI users.
