I recently installed Windows XP (SP3), a few windows based programmes and all personal files on a single drive C on my Acer TravelMate 5730G computer. I then installed Linux Mint 13 Maya with KDE desktop. I now have the option to boot in Windows or Linux and can read all my files in Linux.

I would like to use the KGPG encryption tool in Linux but I get message "GnuPG failed to start. You must fix the GnuPG error first before running KGpg". When I open the "detail" button, I get message "gpgption file '/home/roger/gnupg/options'. No such file or directory".

I do not seem able to delete KGPG and re-install it.

Any ideas how to fix this problem, please??

Do you have GnuPG installed?

Hi Turbocapitalist. Thanks for response. According to Software Manager, I have gnupg, gnupg agent & gnupg2 installed.
