I just installed Arch, to be strict I switched from Ubuntu after few months. First thing to do after OS installation was to get truecrypt working, as partition with all my precious data is encrypted. I followed steps described in method 1 of Truecrypt's Arch Wiki page.
When I was runing Truecrypt in Ubuntu, I was simply clicking on TC icon, then truecrypt's container (disk) password and then root password. It looks like it works a bit different (at least as I managed to configure it...) cause I have to run it with sudo, and it's not asking me for root password (which is ok for me).
I suppose it's effect of %truecrypt ALL=(root) NOPASSWD:/usr/bin/truecrypt in sudoers file, right?
It's working like that: (just if someone could check if it's like it should be and I didn't screw something up...)
After booting I press alt+f2 (I'm running KDE) and type sudo truecrypt
Mount volume (as root, am I right?)
Hide truecrypt to tray
And then I can manage to view/modify/create files as normal user, so there aren't any problems with permissions, right?
Why run truecrypt with root privileges? When you run it as user, it will prompt you for the root password.
When I try to run as normal user, I always got message that "Incorrect password or no TrueCrypt volume found."
I'm 1000% sure that I type password correctly.
So I eventually screwed something?
And you are sure you selected the right container?
Well, I'm using "Auto Mount" feature all the time...
Now I tried to select encrypted partition manually, type password, mount - Truecrypt pops error message saying "Broken pipe"
