- Install the package (called
gnupg on Debian, RedHat and Gentoo), e.g.:
apt-get install gnupg
- Open a shell, and away you go!
Here are some tools that you may prefer to use rather than the command line OpenPGP interface:
- GPA is from the nice GNU Privacy Guard people.
- KGPG is the KDE GPG front-end.
- Seahorse is the Gnome GPG front end.
- pgpdump is a command line tool for displaying pgp content in files, e.g. your public key ring.
- PGPdump Interface is a web page that uses pgpdump. You can paste in ASCII armored PGP files and the site will display them for you.
