Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm running Suse Linux 7.1 and Kde 3.0. I'm trying to use GnuPG in association with Kmail, but I seem to be having problems with it, namely that Kmail will not register that I have any keys or user id's on my key ring.
I have created my own public and private keys, as well as creating a dummy id and added it to my ring. When I execute commands such as gpg --list-keys it will list the ones I have just created.
The problem seems to be occurring when I try to set up Kmail to sign or encrypt any mails for me. I understand that I should not be able to encrypt a mail unless I have the public key of the person I am mailing, and since I'm just starting out at this, I have no keys. So I've been trying to sign my mails, but the icon to sign a message is never active.
At the same time, even when I choose to encrypt a mail, a prompt appears letting me choose which key to encrypt a mail, but this prompt is empty, it appears that Kmail cannot pick up any of my GnuPG details.
I'm not sure at what version of GnuPG I'm running, but I have not applied any patches to it or updated it at all, so it's the regular Suse 7.1 installation.
Am I doing something wrong here? Or is there an issue with Kmail and should I update to KDE 3.0.1?
