Re: A couple of questions -- bugs and gpg-agent

Hash: SHA1

Not realy a respone on your question, but I see that you manage to get gpg-agent to work.
Now I have the problem that I can't even find the file, it just ain't there.
Is there a special package I have to install for it?

I use KDE 3.2.2 on Debian testing/unstable
