    Encryption help

    I created a file container on an external hard drive using Truecrypt in Windows. I can't seem to figure out how to mount it in Ubuntu. I have installed both truecrypt and GDecrypt on my ubuntu partition. Any help explaining how to mount the container would be greatly appreciated.

    hit alt-F2 and type:
    Code:
    gksudo truecrypt
    The interface looks very similar to windows. Just select the file/device and then hit mount.
