EasyGPG on Tails 4.0
I am planning to make it easier to install and use EasyGPG on Tails 4.0.
As I have posted before, Tails has long made it difficult to use Desktop files. This is a problem for EasyGPG because Desktop files are one reason that EasyGPG is easier than gpg
from the command line.
As I write this, I plan to revise EasyGPG (the file easygpg.sh
) and the installer. My plan is to install EasyGPG in the Persistent
folder. When used on Tails, moving EasyGPG's Desktop file to the Desktop and double-clicking it will copy the Actions from the Actions
folder (in Persistent
) to the Desktop instead of opening the Actions
Of course, dragging and dropping will still be impossible.
It will be necessary for both the Tails installer and EasyGPG to be able to know that it is running on Tails. I think now that the test will be that the file system structure is that of Tails, and that the user is amnesia
I am still thinking about what can be done if EasyGPG is installed on a flash drive, and Tails is used.
To install EasyGPG for the first time, click on the following link. This is a tar.gz
file. Extract the contents of the file, which will be a folder called EasyGPG-Installer
. Open the folder, and double-click Install EasyGPG
. This will create your new EasyGPG folder, and open a window to it.https://archive.org/download/easygpg/EasyGPG-Installer.tar.gz
