Truecrypt Error

After MountToday, I was trying to mount a truecrypt volume on my ubuntu machine.  Even though truecrypt wasn’t running, it kept telling me that truecrypt was already running when I tried to open it.  I found this article on the Ubuntu forums talking about the same problem.  The solution?  Simply delete the .TrueCrypt-lock-username file in my home directory.  It worked just fine.

Want to know what truecrypt is?  Want to know how to use it?  Take a look at these articles about creating a truecrypt volume and email encryption. I also have a HOWTO on encrypting your e-mail.
