Creating a new GnuPG key - with KDE


Since everyone seems to be in the mood to create new keys I will show a simple way of doing this. I will follow Ana's ordering and just update the steps that I would do another way.

Update .gnupg/gpg.conf

Just do as written by Ana.

Create key

Add other UID

Change preferences

Set primary UID

Add subkey for encryption

Open the key for editing in terminal as described in "Change preferences" and type in the commands Ana has written down.

Sign my new key with my old key

Send new key to key server


Whereever I refer the context menu you can also go to the "Keys" menu and find the same action there.
