    Well... I don't see how this relates to programming-scripting, which is
    the theme of this area. Thus I'll refrain from answering till explained,
    or the thread is moved to the appropriate area.

    hello dear Robin

    many thanks for the quick reply. Great to hear from you!



    generated a key pair with KGpg

    if i run the terminal:


    PHP Code:
    gpg> list

    pub  2048R/147E7674  generated2014-01-12  expiresnever     callSCEA

    well how can i find the private key. where is it?

    i have no glue.?

    Well - why do i ask this: some questions that come up if i think about the keys: - the private and the public.


    Well - what about the export - i can do a export of key- but how to find the private key.
    note - i want to use the private key in another programme than email.


    i want to use the key in combination with Filezilla.

    Am i able to do such with keys that are generated with KGpg ?
    Do i need to copy the keys for such usage into other folders!`?

    gpg -a --export mynamekey > mynamekey-public-gpg.key
    gpg --export martin.kaspar@campus-24.com > mynamekey-public-gpg.key

    does not work

    Dear Robin - the question of the day is - where can i find the two pairs of my new key set.



    PHP Code:
    gpg> list 
    well this does not list the keys - what should i do?

    dear Robin,

    many thanks for all you did!

    well - i cannot move the thread - unfortunatley i am not able to do that!

    well the question is: how can i move the key from one KGpg to another notebook - which all runs KGpg

    How to move the keys

    well is this an apropiate method!?

    PHP Code:
    gpg ---export chris@seagul.co.uk chrisroos-public-gpg.key
    gpg 
    ---export-secret-keys chris@seagul.co.uk chrisroos-secret-gpg.key
    gpg 
    --export-ownertrust chrisroos-ownertrust-gpg.txt
    gpg 
    ---export-secret-keys chris@seagul.co.uk chrisroos-secret-gpg.key
    gpg 
    --export-ownertrust chrisroos-ownertrust-gpg.txt 

    well - i am doing some trials

    will have a closer look at the options i have.

    greetings

    Yes, you can. Click on the triangle button and ask moderators to do it
    for you.

    hello dear Robin, hello dear moderators


    can you put this thread to the appropiate forum?
    The programming-forum is not the right place for this question on KGpg

    i guess that there were serveral better places.

    look forward to some helping hands.

    thx for all in advance.

    Try again.

    There is a little triangle button below your window. It is labeled
    "report" or similar. Click on it, request move.

    If moderators had already seen this thread, they would already had moved
    this days ago, or told me straight up to shut up, that I was mistaken
    (nicely, of course :-) - they have better manners than I do). You can
    not simply write another post here asking for it.

    I'm not using the web, so I can not use that button. You have to do it.

    hello dear Robin

    well - i allready did it-.

    in other words - i have sent the moderators an e-mail. i used the traingle button

    what you can see in the previous post is just a copy of the test that i have sent via the reporting tool.

    so i guess that the mods will do the next steps as soon as they will get the time to do that.
