Kgpg not using GnuPG2

I seem to have set Kgpg to use GnuPG v2, but whenever I generate a new key pair, it seems to be GnuPG v1

What am I doing wrong?

It Kgpg settings I have set the path to /usr/bin/gpg2

Hi LakeMonster

This can be sorted out as per https://whonix.org/wiki/Support#Free_Support_Principle

Setting Kgpg, to use GnuPG2 is not Whonix specific. You may want to try searching the internet for info/documentation on this topic or gpg, kgpg specific forums.

Also: Kgpg can be a bit buggy (many users report problems with kgpg). Try using just gpg.

@Patrick Do you think its best to configure KGpg to use v2 if I figure our how?

[GPG Settings] was duplicated but I fixed that. Untested.

If I am on TESTING repos, I just need to update my template to apply this change, correct?

My bad. Thanks for sorting it out.

Whonix 14 only. All repositories. BUT!

This only takes effect for newly created user accounts / newly created configs. Not for existing user accounts / configs. I.e. only works if there is no kgpg config in user’s home folder yet.

Option 1:

Stop kgpg.



Emulate these changes. Save.

Restart kgpg.

Option 2:

Use kgpg graphical user interface to make these changes.
