Thanks for the responses. I've downloaded GPG and
installed the same.
- - Since I don't have an earlier installation of *trusted GPG*
- - couldn't succeed with the MD5sum command, I haven't
verified the signatures.
So If someone can help me with the verification of
signatures, I'd be grateful
Though I've been using PGP for a short while, I've never
checked detached signatures.
I've installed GPG and GPG shell in a temporary directory
(to test out till I verify signatures). I hope I can un-
install and re install GPG / shell, if need be (if the
signature check end up bad)
I've imported public / private keys from PGP using GPGKeys
I can see the keys when I start GPGKeys (though I
see each key repeated in two lines)
When I try to encrypt files using GPGtools, I get to
select the file(to be encrypted), but when the
" GPG Tools - Encrypt " window opens up, I don't see
any public keys in the dialog box
What I've checked so far
- - GPG.exe is in the path
- - GnuPG-Homedir has the config files
- - the correct directory (having config and keyrings ) is
specified as the - GnuPG-Homedir in the GPgconfig window
but can't find an answer to my problem
any clues on where I've gone wrong ?
any help / directions are appreciated
sorry about the "free " software stuff in my last post
How does one denote "free as in free beer" (i.e.) Software
not requiring payment, while writing to groups like this ?
[and how to distinguish **that** from Free as in Freedom of
Speech ? -say a version of Linux that needs payment ]
send a blank mail to rainman_(1)_eml_(2)_cc to get my
public key. replace _(1)_ with @ and _(2)_ with .
