Another day, another howto :) Note however that this howto does [i]not[/i] cover full file system encryption, merely encrypting [i]individual [/i]files.\n\nThe AAO's defualt Linpus already comes with a basic command line encryption utility. All we're going to be doing is adding a simple gui to streamline the process.\n\nPS. If anyone wants to built an rpm for this - be my guest :)\n\n[b]Step 1 - installation[/b]\n\nDownload the gui binary [url=http://www.annafilippova.com/aao/gpg_gui]here[/url]\n\nRun the following command to copy to a standard location:\n\n[code]sudo cp gpg_gui /usr/bin/[/code]\n\n[b]Step 2 - adding to right click menu[/b]\n\nOpen your File Manager. Click "Edit" in the menu, then "Configure Custom Actions".\n\nYou will see a new window popup. Click Add. Fill in the Following details:\n\n[code]Name: Encrypt/Decrypt File\nDescription: Encrypts/decrypts selected file\nCommand: gpg_gui %f[/code]\n\nMake sure that's a small %f - the app only takes one input, but it can be a directory or a file.\n\n Pick a suitable icon. \n\nUnder the "Appearance Condition" tab, check everything (including directories). Hit OK.\n\nDone. Now when you right click on a file or folder, you can see an Encrypt/Decrypt option.\n\n[b]Usage[/b]\n\nWhen the program window pops up, type in a password to encrypt the file. When you click "Encrypt" you will see a new file appear with a .gpg extension - this is the encrypted version of your file, it is complete so it safe to completely remove the unencrypted version. You will need to delete the unencrypted file manually.
