I run OpenSuse 11.4 and KDE 4.6. I installed Thunderbird and Enigma.

Thunderbird is the following version: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de; rv: Gecko/20101206 SUSE/3.1.7 Thunderbird/3.1.7

I have no clue where to put the GPG key. Some said that I have to put the GPG keys in $HOME/.gnupg. But, where should i find this directory? I looked through all the directories – I am lost!

When I have several keys, can I put all of them there? Does the system find the right ones on its own?

If that directory does not exist, you could create it. – slhck Oct 2 '11 at 20:04
Can you provide a screenshot? I think that Key To isn't the path to the keys... – Aluísio A. S. G. Oct 2 '11 at 20:04

If I understood correctly, you are trying to import existing keys in your keyring. Enter the following command in the terminal:

gpg --import <path-to-keyfile>
