Tumblerd preventing dismount in Truecrypt [solved]
« on: December 30, 2018, 10:18:34 pm »
This is weird. I've just been accessing an encrypted drive, and now I want to unmount it.

However, Truecrypt says "the target is busy". If I try to unmount it in the File Manager I get "Volume is busy" and apparently /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/tumblr-1/tumblerd is the culprit.

The thing is, I wasn't using Tumblr. In fact I never do.

Truecrypt isn't offering to force a dismount, although the file manager does, but I'm worried about losing access to the encrypted drive, so I don't want to risk that.

Any suggestions gratefully received.

TiA

OK. I got fed up and shut down the PC.

On restart I was able to access the encrypted drive...

Marking this solved now.
