We are desperately trying to create a .pom.gpg file. I have successfully (so it says) installed GPG4WIN on my computer, although it’s only showing Kleopatra and GPA programs. I created a Certificate and a Key, but I am confused as to how to start creating my files.
A lot of this is rooted in a misunderstanding of the purpose of the program.
I believe I am to create a file in another program, and then use GPG to encrypt it, so that it will be saved with the “.gpg” extension.
However, I am still at a loss as to how to create the “.pom” file.
Every time I search the internet, it brings me back to GPG4WIN.
Help please! This is time sensitive!
If you are using command line encryption I found this site very helpful:
I have the same problem. I used Notepad as well as Notepad++ for
saving the file in .gpg or .asc extension, yet it just does not do as
it is mentioned in the compendium. I HAVE SEARCHED EVERYWHERE ON THE
INTERNET AND DO NOT WANT TO USE COMMAND LINE.
HENCE, I HAVE STOPPED USING GPG4WIN PROGRAMS FURTHER !!! THIS IS A
LOSS FOR GPG4WIN PROGRAM AND WILL DEFINITELY LOOSE CUSTOMERS AND
PUBLIC CONFIDENCE IN THE SOFTWARE !!
IF anybody can help in this matter, then you are most welcome to do
so, otherwise I will UNINSTALL the program and get rid of it !!!
I am pretty new to this so what is a .pom file? Also, are you just trying to encrypt a file? This thing is designed to do a whole lot more like automatically encrypt your email. I only needed the encryption part and it took me a few tries just to get that working.
What I need to do, as stated in the compendium in chapter 10, is to import a certificate into Kleopatra by importing the Public certificate example, Adele’s certificate (just a robot for practice purposes) into Kleopatra.
Winodws Notpad cannot save a .txt file into either .asc or .gpg extention. The .asc or .gpg file is needed so as it could be IMPORTED into Kleopatra for recognizing it as a Public key. The compendium clearly states this could be done with Notepad, whereas I found found this to be TOTALLY FALSE. I searched other places on the internet with people having similar problems, yet found nothing useful.
HENCE, I HAVE STOPPED USING THIS SHITTY PROGRAM, ITS A WASTE OF TIME AND ENERGY. THERE ARE OTHERS OUT THERE LIKE TREND MICRO ENCRYPTION CLIENT FOR EMAIL, PLEASE TRY THAT OUT INSTEAD !!!
Anyone want to answer this is most welcomed to do so at:
Just rename the .txt file in windows explorer to .asc and proceed as usual. I had a public key that had some other file extension that it was not lookin for and it was no problem. They are all text files, just change the extension.
in notepad, simply put double quotes (") around the file name and you can name your file anything. Not a big deal.
