I should have said "I installed ecryptfs on studio once I realized
what I had done.  Ecryptfs is an option when first installing kubuntu,
but not when first installing Studio."

Also, when I ran

mkdir: cannot create directory /home/art/.ecryptfs: file exists
ERROR: /home/art/.Private must be empty before proceeding.
