incompatibilities with truecrypt/veracrypt

Hi unfortunately there seems to be an incompatibility with fingerprint gui and truecrypt/veracrypt.

If fingerprint-gui is installed (v. 1.08) truecrypt and veracrypt won't work. If I deinstall fingerprint-gui it all works well.

Is there a chance that both programs will coexist again? Do you need more information?

Testet on Ubuntu 16.04 and 14.04

I didn't test it yet, but I suspect it's the same bug like mentioned in this thread:

I've tested veracrypt on Linux Mint 18 now. Veracrypt really makes strange use of PAM. It will never run with fingerprint-gui. The only you can do is to disable sudo for fingerprint-gui in PAM configuration. Then veracrypt will work (with password only).

Thank you anyway for this workaround. As I use fingerprint gui mostly to unlock the screen this could work for me. :-)
