I'm trying to open Truecrypt on my 10.04 and it say it's already running...........I don't see it with system monitor nor 'top' command in terminal. Am I missing something here?

If a messagebox TrueCrypt is already running appears when starting TrueCrypt, check for a hidden file in the home directory of the concerned user called .TrueCrypt-lock-username. Substitute username with the individual username. Delete the file and start TrueCrypt again.

In Nautilus press Ctrl+h to display hidden files (starting with a dot).

(I know the answer is coming late, but the thread still shows up in Google, so it's better to have it answered.)
