    decrypt gpg via gmail

    Hi all

    Not sure if I should be here or general. Have created a GPG key and registered on Ubuntu server.
    I have an email from launchpad to validate my key via gmail. FireGPG doesn't work.
    How do I save as txt file to open in Terminal and enter my passphrase?
    I tried copying & paste in to gedit and save as file.txt and file.gpg. Both times I got error I didn't have priveleges. I assume I use gksudo?
    Could someone be more specific in this proceedure please?

    Mystery solved.
    Saved encrypted message as file.txt, as Super user. Then:
    Code:
    gpg --decrypt file.txt

    yes, one those step backs , before it was possible to decrypt/encrypt text with a plugin directly in the gedit. It is now gone unfortunately.

    Still you can decrypt text in thunderbird/enigmail or evolution comfortably.

    Decryption of files is still possible in nautilus/seahorse, thought encryption is broken.

    I think the Chrome browser also has a firegpg like extension but its definitely not as useful as firegpg in terms of functionality.
