Truecrypt requires admin priviledges

Truecrypt demands that I have administrator privileges, but I am using an administrator account in Fedora 17 and have entered my admin password when truecrypt asked for it.

So, why then am I prompted with this message when trying to mount an encrypted container?

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 Newer versions of sudo automatically determine whether a terminal is required ('requiretty' option is obsolete).
