I posted it to gnupg-devel, but this thread seems to have migrated. You can get it from Strictly speaking it doesn't require X - it just runs an external program to display the photo. If you have a program that will work without X, then it should work fine. You can also save the photo to a regular JPG file for future use, and that doesn't require any graphics display at all. V3 of the patch coming soon. I have some good stuff to add :) David -- David Shaw | | WWW +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+ "There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX.
