I am pretty inexperienced with Linux... So please bear with me here.
I keep running into permission problems when working with
truecrypt on Linux. Currently, I run
truecrypt as root to mount my encrypted devices and containers. This all works fine, but I have to interact with the mounted volumes in the terminal as root, and I can't seem to use many of my applications on the files... Either because they can't be run as root or I don't know how to use them from the terminal. This seems really inconvenient to me.
How do people deal with this? Am I missing something, or is this just the way things have to be?
I am on Fedora 17 (KDE spin) now but I have this trouble with any distro I try.
