I am trying to install any GnuPG GUI for easy encryption/decryption of text, and I feel like I am in bizarro world where nothing works at all. On Mac OS X, I use GPGTools and it works flawlessly, so I thought it will be similar on Ubuntu, but no such luck so far.
What I tried so far:
- GPA - it just starts, shows no less than 3 error messages on top of each other, and does nothing (doesn't even displays the keys I imported into gpg through bash).
- KGPG - install tons of KDE packages through
apt-get, and then it never starts anyway. I managed to get it to start once, but never again.
- Seahorse - finally something that actually starts and shows my keys, but I can't find a way to do anything with them (encrypt or decrypt). Nothing shows up in any Nautilus menu. I have installed
gedit-plugins, but nothing like GPG or Seahorse plugin shows up in gedit plugin list.
What are my other options?
(Note: I specifically don't want to use a mail client with GPG supoprt, I just want to encrypt and decrypt text files.)
