can I copy .gnupg folder to a machine with different username/group?


hi-

I think I backed up my .gnupg but don't know if I can put it in my current home directory.

Is this possible?

I know now it is better to use export and import. I can't run export because I just backed up home and have switched distros but still use ext4.

thx. for any assistance.

Yes. you can copy it to a new /home on a new system under a new username ( and assign correct owner:group)
