It seems for me that an encrypted lv is more trouble than it is worth. I am going to make a backup and reinstall without encryption.
Next, I need to figure out how to use clonezilla with lvm.
I found that the command dd works without fooling with lvm. For me it is KISS and use dd to make an image of encrypted system. On my next desktop install, I am not encrypting. I want to be able to practive using lvm.
I decided against reinstalling. The way it is will work fine for now.
