How do I make Thunderbird use my certificates stored in Kleopatra (KDE)? When I try to import certificates it says it's looking for PKCS12 files, but I can't find any. I'm not sure where Kleopatra stores keys, but I assume it takes them from gnupg's directory (~/.gnupg). So how do I make the two play together?

Export your certificate and private key from Kleopatra (only PEM format supported). Convert the file to PKCS#12 format with the openssl pkcs12 command (find tutorials on Google). Import the result into Thunderbird's certificate manager.

While you asked about Kleopatra specifically, since you mentioned GPG you might be interested in the Engimail addon for Thunderbird, which simplifies combining Thunderbird and GnuPG a lot.
