Full-Disk Encryption, Linux Mint 15

Plaa's instructions for full-disk encryption at http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/1166 work fine for Linux Mint 15. This is for a new installation, or a new Mint partition. Do it.

For convenience, I have reproduced his instructions here:

(1) Boot your system using the Linux Mint 15 live CD or USB stick.
 
(2) Open a terminal and enter the following commands:

$ sudo apt-get remove ubiquity
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install ubiquity
$ sudo ubiquity

Note that this is no longer necessary: Linux Mint 15 comes with an up-to-date version of ubiquity that supports full disk encryption.
