    GPG key management in 10.04

    Hi

    I have a fresh upgrade of 10.04 with my existing /home directory. I cannot get seahorse to import my existing private gpg key that is held as both an asc file and a private block.

    What app is best to use for the management of GPG keys in 10.04, I would use enigmail but it is not compatible with the latest 64bit thunderbird in the repos and therefore have to use evolution.

    Seahorse should automatically recognize the key if it's in the ~/.gnupg directory. If not, I suppose you could try using the command line

    Code:
    gpg --allow-secret-key-import --import private.key

    Hmm. I use Enigmail with Thunderbird all the time, and I am on 64 bit Lucid (I am assuming the versions in the repos are 64 bit).

    For some reason I cannot install enigmail from the repos as it says incompatible x64 version and the xpi although it installs does nothing.
