Open a terminal window and type claws or claws-mail or just claw followed by TAB. Execute it and see the response.

So you lack GPGME and your Claws was compiled with GPG support. Either install GPG or recompile Claws.

Help for a Newbie- Re Claws-mail

I thought i had it all worked out but alas i must be doing something wrong.Being a newbie I'm not sure how to compile and I need a simplified explanation on how to install GPG to get claws to work. My methods failed. Some added information after checking installed packets through terminal I get libgpg-error - GnuPG error library code. I hope this helps to solve my problem. More help would be great.

Thanks a million from a Newbie,Scott

Sorry, I do not know how you should go about installing programs in Vector. Maybe you can use Slackware packages. There should be a package manager in Vector, learn how to use it.
