Try creating the directory /home/tompoe/.gnupg before generating a key. Please note the dot before 'gnupg'.

http://www.gnupg.org/docs-mls.html BTW, Werner, there are very often people who don't find the info to the mailing lists because they just don't look under Documentation (which I can perfectly understand because it's IMHO not very intuitive). I think you should make the Mailing Lists page an item in the main menu to avoid this problem in the future.
