how to store the keys in KGpg
hello dear all

solved! ;-)

in the process to upgrade from suse12.3 to 13.1 i want to store the passwords / keys in the

therefore i need to start KGpg - but it does not start by the start-menu.
note .- i have had this issue years before - i guess that i have to start it via termnial

- how to do this?
- if it runs - how to make a copy of all the keys that are stored in KGpg?

love to hear from you


note: i prefer to use KGpg - for the saving and management of the keys. i do not want to work with the The Enigmail OpenPGP Key Manager

question: is this okay... ??

see the Enigmail OpenPGP Key Manager

Enigmail OpenPGP Key Manager
The Enigmail OpenPGP Key Manager is designed to be simple to use with a clean, powerful interface.
You can access it from within Thunderbird/SeaMonkey via the OpenPGP menu: OpenPGP > Key Management.
You can also run it as a stand alone application by appending -pgpkeyman to the command that
runs Thunderbird/SeaMonkey, e.g. on Windows: "CProgram Files\Mozilla Thunderbird\thunderbird.exe" -pgpkeyman.

1. Have you installed the kgpg package on your system?
2. Typically Kgpg can be found on the taskbar. In my case it's found among the hidden icons.
3. In any event if it's installed you can get it to run by typing

in Kde's "Run command" window. You certainly do not have to read it from a terminal. You can also find it in the "Utilities" section of KDE's menu.
If you don't see it then I suspect you haven't installed the package.
