Ubuntu: How to decrypt home folder/username



Question:

I have reinstalled ubuntu because while I was using tasksel it deleted everything installed even ubuntu-desktop itself . so I'm trying to decrypt (mount) the home/username folder but whenever I tried any passphrase it gives me this error

dashbox@DashBox:/home/lentakit$ sudo ecryptfs-mount-private  [sudo] password for dashbox:   E nter your login passphrase:  Error: Unwrapping passphrase and inserting into the user session keyring    failed [-5]  Info: Check the system log for more information from libecryptfs  ERROR: Your passphrase is incorrect  Enter your login passphrase:  Error: Unwrapping passphrase and inserting into the user session keyring  failed [-5]  Info: Check the system log for more information from libecryptfs  ERROR: Your passphrase is incorrect  Enter your login passphrase:  Error: Unwrapping passphrase and inserting into the user session keyring       failed [-5]  Info: Check the system log for more information from libecryptfs  ERROR: Your passphrase is incorrect  ERROR: Too many incorrect password attempts, exiting  dashbox@DashBox:/home/lentakit$  

What should I do to mount my home folder again Edit: it give me this INFO: Success! Private data mounted at [/tmp/ecryptfs.3gkBYrAQ]. when i run ecryptfs-recover-private and when i go to tmp folder , nothing is there only these two files which was there in the home/username folder before decryption thses are the files
