Hi antonio montagnani!

I am no expert.

Lock files usually mean that "someone else" (maybe you as another user
or befor a re-boot) were useing the utility so a "lock file" was set
up to make sure that only one user at a time may use the utility
(happens once in a while with Firefox and it's user parameter files).

The usual "fix" (if you know there are no other users) is to be root
and delete the file.

It may be that your user has no permissions to /var/lock or that the
program has not permissions to /var/lock.

Good Hunting!
