Need a GUI for e ncrypt/decrypt in Ubuntu 11.10

The GUI I like the best for GnuPG is GNU Privacy Assistant. It is "gpa" in synaptic. [sudo apt-get install gpa].

I don't know if GPA does encrypt/decrypt though (I use command line for most everything). 

Another option is the plugins for Seahorse ("seahorse-plugins"). You can add [sudo apt-get install seahorse-plugins] to get right-click functionalities for Seahorse. With this you can get OSDnotify displays of verified keys etc.

GUI wise though, I'm a huge fan of the GNU Privacy Assistant.
