    compiling "sign"

    Alex Pankratov has a file called sign.

    Extracting it and running "make" gives this error:
    Code:

    A replacement for 'sign' is also an option, but at this point I don't know of any replacements in ubuntu. All I need is something to test a digital signature of a file. Unfortunately I'm not very familiar with digital signatures...

    You can verify PGP signatures in ubuntu, just need to import the private key with the passwords and encryption keys application and then right click the file on nautilus and select decrypt/verify.

    Do you have any ideas on scripting it though? I don't know the nautilus command for unsigning...

    You could check the CLI options of gpg for scripting
    Code:
    gpg --help
    man gpg
