in thread signature test failing

... 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?

      Edit: To whomever decided to downvote this: "Why? I already explained that I have very little experience with Linux in general, so what do you want of me?"

        Sure is. Go to the "View" menu and then down to "Show Hidden Files". That will cause all the files in your directories to be displayed.

    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).
