    Default decypher pgp with a quick and dirty method - doable !?

    Hello dear community


    i run Opensuse 11-4 (32 Bit Version)


    well occasionallly i receive a n pgp-crypted mail -(once in a week)

    Well my question is: TBIRD and Enigmail are very very difficult to handle - Are there any ways to go round them.
    can i read the e-mails that are crypted with some other methods.

    Can i /am i ablle to read them with decoding them via command line or some other ways... (note in windows i used pgp-tray - a neat programme that was very very easy to handle. And Thunderbird - enigmail - GnuPG are so ugly hard to install.

    So my question - are there any ways round the BIG-SOLUTION..!?

    btw: heard some guys open the mails with Pipe: |gpg -d

    Well i have to do some callls for the key.

    love to hear from you

    greetings dilbertone

    The quick and dirty method will still require gnupg.

    From your earlier threads, it appears to be gnupg that is messed up, and not Tbird/enigmail.

    Once you get gnupg straightened out (see the last couple of posts in the previous thread), Tbird with enigmail should be the easiest way to go.

    Personally, I do sometimes use scripts that I run with nmh (a command line mail reader). But the scripts depend on a working gnupg, and you don't appear to have that.

    I suggest you start by posting a list of your configured repos. You can use "zypper lr" at the command line.

    Hopefully, somebody with more experience than I can point out potential inconsistencies in the repos.

    If there are problems with your repos, that will make it hard to fix the inconsistency between gpg and its libraries.

    What? They come installed by default. You have done some breaking on your
    system.
