Which Linux distro are you using? The simplest way would be to install 
it from the repositories. For example on Debian or a Debian-based 
distro: "apt install gpg". There is a great chance that it is already 
installed on your system.

If you want a more recent version of GnuPG you could build it on your 
own, but that is not necessary, if you don't need the latest features ;-)
