invoking the GPC-AGENT & to initially firing up the agent (enigmail)
hello dear linux-friends,
note - as i say below - i have (after getting kgpg to work ) generated a new key. so i guess that i now did all what is necessary to run the gnugpg-agent.
Well i was wondering how i invoke the gpg-agent - but at the moment i think that after the first start of KGpg and after
creating a first key-pair the gpg-agent is running for ever and ever. The agent will get started after system start.
Well - since i have managed to enter / import all the keys into KGpg i think i am lucky and the credentials are loaded.
So now i think all necessary things are done - to proeceed running (and using) thundermail and enigmail.
....well now i am facing a new problem.
kgpg does not start while kgpg -k does
well i thougth that kgpg should start at start up of the computer but it can't:
if i get it starting up with the command kgpg -k in console then it runs - but not with an other way to start - in system tray nothing happens.
if you press the button - nothing happens.
by the way - after i have set up a new key-pair
so i guess that i now have all done that is needed to invoke the gpg-agent
but the question is: do i need to start KGpg in the terminal
starting it with the command kgpg -k in console seems to work
everytime i close kgpg - then the only way to restart is - by doing this via the command in terminal
the other (alternative) way - starting it with some clicks in the sytem tray - does not work at all.
why is this so!?
the original-posting was the following:
i currently stuck to the process "invoking the GPC-AGENT" , as a prerequisite for Thunderbird and enigmail .
i am trying to initially firing up the agent to run enigmail
i am currently configuring all the prerequesites for the thunderbird and enigmail
at the moment i have a vanilla-installation of opensuse 12.3 on my notebook - all is fresh - no old data or credentials are used.
The whole systme is new and fresh.
see the following data - of the operating system and the rest of fresh installation note - i do not need to import all the mails - i only need to import the credentials. and i have managed this.
so to sume up what is gained: what is on the machine; - the following things:
operating-system; OpenSuse 12.3
Thunderbird Version 17.0.5
gpg2 - GnuPG 2
GnuPG 2 is the successor of "GnuPG" or GPG. It provides: GPGSM, gpg-agent, and a keybox library.
version 2.0.19-5.1.1. i 586 OpenSuse 12.3-1.7 mit Prioritäg 99
libassuan0 - IPC library used by GnuPG version 2
version 2.0.3-2.1.1 i586 OpenSuse 12.3-1.7 mit Prioritäg 99
libgpgme11 - a library that allows the access of programmes to GnuPG.
in KGpg all the passwords are included.
By the way - i do not want to use openPGP. i prefer the usage of KGpg
The question now is: how to proceed the next steps are to look for the correct installation and configuring of gnupg.

question: how to invoke the gnupg? and very very important for me is the question - Do i have to invoke this GPC-AGENT for one or how many user!?
It is best not to run multiple instance of the gpg-agent, so you should make sure that only one is running.
How to make sure that i do invoke the GPC-AGENT only one time and not twice or three times.
Which steps are needet - what do i need to get enigmail up and running!?
love to hear from you
