How to configure KMail with GPG on Slackware Linux 14.1

No additional software is required on a full Slackware 14.1 install. Slackware 14.1 ships with KDE 4.10.5. Prerequisites If you don’t already have a key pair (secret and public key), then your first order of business is to create one. The preferrable option is to use the CLI with the command: gpg --gen-key KDE provides two graphical tools for working with GPG, namely KGpg and Kleopatra. KGpg will walk you through the initial setup using an interactive wizard and subsequently create the needed key pair and config files (do not use Kleopatra for your initial setup).

Slackware 14.1 review - Into Slackness

I did a review of Slackware Linux 14.0 a year ago and I was unsure as to whether I should make another one or not. There is rarely much change from a user point of view between different Slackware releases, and I expected to end up ripping off most of my previous review. Speaking of which, for a more well rounded assessment of Slackware Linux, please check out the Slackware 14.0 review.
