Hi Tay Too,

Yes, .gnupg is a directory where gpg finds/puts its files. The command you want is either:


You can learn a bit more about it via an online tutorial, but also via the man page (the manual page on your computer) by typing:

man gpg
or possibly man gnupg (i'm not at console atm)!

There might also be an info page:

info gpg

Good luck!

Yesterday i was able to open an actual window of Gnupg through my terminal with a command similar to ~/.gnupg    now when i enter this it tells me this is a directory and wont do anything with it, any help?
