I use Truecrypt in Windows for my file history. I'd like to do the same on my Ubuntu partition.
I installed Truecrypt but I can't figure out where I can select the auto-mount option. The file is on an external drive that is connected most of the time. In Windows I found this option by adding it to my favourites. Then I could select several options for the drive. "Auto-mount volume when host-device gets connected" makes sure Truecrypt prompts me for my password when I connect the drive. I'd like to do the same in Ubuntu. Could anyone help me out?
There is an option named "Auto-mount all device-hosted volumes" under File. When I click this it asks for a volume password, which I presume to be the one for my backup volume. I enter this and then I get a prompt saying that it's an invalid password.

This the option screen I'm looking for:
