Someone can help me with this strange error when i try to mount a truecrypt volume on Fedora 19 64 bit? Well, it don't needs too much explanation, just take a look on screenshot please

EDIT: In case of error on screenshot, this is the message:

Failed to obtain administrator privileges: sudo: sorry, you must have a tty to run sudo

To enable use of 'sudo' by applications without a terminal window, please disable 'requiretty' option in '/etc/sudoers'. Newer versions of sudo automatically determine whether a terminal is required ('requiretty' option is obsolete).

login as root open /etc/sudoers or using visudo comment

Defaults    requiretty

so that line look like

#Defaults    requiretty

Worked like a glove, i don't tried this because i was using terminal with su+visudom and i tought it was to work. your tip worked like a glove, thnks man ^^

PS: still inside of the question, how i save and quit if i'm editing this with visudo? i could modify there, but i had just "insert" or "replace" ( well, that's was my first time with visudo :P)
