Ubuntu 6.10 - Encryption Problems


I've just created a file and in the box provided when I saved it put a password in to encrypt the file, now I don't know how to undo that as there isn't a box to put the password in when I open it? Any ideas?

Any idea which application you used to encrypt it? (gnupg or some front-end to it, possibly?) That'd be a start.

If you're not sure, open a terminal and type:
file encrypted_file_here
where 'encrypted_file_here' is the path to the file you're trying to unencrypt. Post the results here.
