TrueCrypt is already running - Ubuntu 12.1

Hi!

Encountered the following problem today: When I wanted to open truecrypt I got the following error message: "truecrypt is already running".

Solution

Most likely you did not  close the application "cleanly" the last time you were using it. Now there is a lock file in you home directory.

Ok, open your home directory. Press CTRL + H (this will show the hidden files).

Now, there should be a file called TrueCrypt-lock-USERNAME.-DELETE IT.

Everything should be fine again.
