gpg: WARNING: unsafe permissions on configuration file `/home/b/.gnupg/options' gpg:
I downloaded this program recently, but don't recall doing anything with it, like setting it up or anything, and if it was a tar or a bz, I may have opened it, thus spraying it to locations unknown.
Anyway, when I opened bash as root and entered file name, it said permission denied.
I don't know what to do.
While I'm here, why does filename imply that 'home' is above 'b', but when I enter Home from icon, 'b' is not WITHIN it, but a level UP?
I don't understand that.
oh, and to be clear, that message appears on opening shell. the whole message is
gpg: WARNING: unsafe permissions on configuration file `/home/b/.gnupg/options'
gpg: WARNING: unsafe enclosing directory permissions on configuration file `/home/b/.gnupg/options'

Since b is your username, the directory /home/b is your "Home". Hence, Dolphin will say "Home" at the top. But it is actually /home/b. If you double click on the line that says "Home" it will show you that.
If you do up 1 level. You will be at /home where you will see b as a directory under it.
I think the permission & ownership of the directory '/home/b/.gnupg' and the file in it '/home/b/.gnupg/options' is messed up.
Open up Konsole. Run this command & post the output:
