in reply to signature test failing

As asarih said, it looks like your ~root/.gnupg/options file is causing trouble. This is causing the "make test" portion of the build fail, which in turn stops the build process. You could try moving the options file out of the way, or editing it to remove/fix the offending lines.

As for your question about cut/paste, try selecting the text you want to paste, then using the middle mouse button to paste. Whenever you select anything, it automatically gets copied. If you only have two buttons, try pressing them both at once (though that could require some setup).

    ... Ok, I feel stupid now... confused, but stupid. In my directory view, I could not see any .gnupg folder, I had to attempt to go to it before it appeared... anyway, it seems the comments at the top of the file were causing the problems. (the ones saying that they will be removed when the file is copied to other users).

    Thanks.. heh

    My code doesn't have bugs, it just develops random features.

      if you were trying to see the .gnupg directory using ls or ls -l, what you need is ls -a or ls -la

      In Linux and *nix, Files whose names begin with a dot are"hidden" - they don't show in listings by default.

      --Bob Niederman,

      All code given here is UNTESTED unless otherwise stated.

        Is there a way to force them to show up in a 'KDE' filebrowser?

      please, type this:


      You'll see that you are compiling gnupg as root (so your home now is /root).

      You shouldn't do this to get your .gnupg at your user home. Try to never compile as root.

      There is a kdesu command (check man kdesu or info kdesu) that can log you as root only for some command. But I don't know how could you install a module that also compiles gnupg...

      If I were you, I would read the INSTALL file first:

      joe INSTALL

      You should read some FAQs or LINUX newsgroups (there should be all the answers, previously posted by others that had solved this before).
