How do I make a PGP key?


Hey. How do I make a private and public PGP key. I need one to use the kopete cryptography plugin and to send encrypted emails with evolution. I've used PGP for windows and you just made a private key, the public key for it got uploaded to a server and you just used it.

In addition: it always makes sense to read
the documentation of a program you are
using :)

Cheers,

Worked great. Thanks. Where do I find the documentation or is gpg --help it? Also, is there a gui for pgp?
