Hello dear Elv13
many thanks for the answer - the keys / file is no problem at the moment.

many thanks for the answer and the hints.
note - as i say below - i have (after getting kgpg to work ) generated a new key. so i guess that i now did all what is necessary to run the gnugpg-agent.
Well i was wondering how i invoke the gpg-agent - but at the moment i think that after the first start of KGpg and after
creating a first key-pair the gpg-agent is running for ever and ever. The agent will get started after system start.
Well - since i have managed to enter / import all the keys into KGpg i think i am lucky and the credentials are loaded.
So now i think all necessary things are done - to proeceed running (and using) thundermail and enigmail.
....well now i am facing a new problem.
kgpg does not start while kgpg -k does
well i thougth that kgpg should start at start up of the computer but it can't:
if i get it starting up with the command kgpg -k in console then it runs - but not with an other way to start - in system tray nothing happens.
if you press the button - nothing happens.
by the way - after i have set up a new key-pair
so i guess that i now have all done that is needed to invoke the gpg-agent
but the question is
: do i need to start KGpg in the terminal
starting it with the command kgpg -k in console seems to work
everytime i close kgpg - then the only way to restart is - by doing this via the command in terminal
the other (alternative) way - starting it with some clicks in the sytem tray - does not work at all.
why is this so!?
Elv13 - I love to hear from you
