    How to manage GnuPG keyring in 12.04?

    I have used seahorse since 9.04. But in 12.04 I unable to use it because of it's poor interface. And it's buttons are disabled. What is going wrong?

    well you need to install seahorse-nautilus, this is how they call it today. For key management it is ok then , the GUI di dnot much change.
    For decryption it seems to work too, but encryption makes problems, as it often chooses rather random key from the keyring instead the one select.

    it is not in the right click, it is in the menu or simply under manage keys.
    you can also start seahorse from command line and this GUI for managing keyring will come up.

    You can create new keys by going to File->New and import them via File->Import. See the screenshot.

    Thank you very much! I forgot about Unity's main menu at the top of the deskop!
