Is there easy use and install graphic pgp software for ubuntu 16.04? Not for email use. I tried to install gnupg but instructions didn't work. Can I use email versions for text use only? What would be good?

  • You mean GPG ? gnupg.org/software/frontends.html – Panther Sep 14 '17 at 21:47
  • Yes. Should I try to get that installed or is there something better? – Kari Urhola Sep 15 '17 at 10:33
  • Still not working. How do I update gnupg2? Some command to update all? – Kari Urhola Sep 15 '17 at 17:29

    Depends what are you trying to do ? simply stating it is not working or you want a graphical front end is insufficient. Post a command or see gnupg.org/gph/en/manual/x110.html . Ubuntu uses seahorse wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Seahorse and kgpg utils.kde.org/projects/kgpg – Panther Sep 15 '17 at 17:37
  • Installation did not complete, it said 10 "something" is unupdated or something. Propably that's why KGpg is not openin also. Something is missing and re-installation is not fixing that. I'm affraid Ubuntu is too much for me to handle. I don't need much else than browser but I would like to learn pgp use. – Kari Urhola Sep 16 '17 at 18:26

The GUI for GnuPG is called "seahorse"

You can install it by typing sudo apt-get install seahorse at a command prompt.
