OpenPGP_Applet(1) GNOME applet for OpenPGP text encryption


Version 0.9.1


OpenPGP Applet allows encryption and decryption of the clipboard's content with a symmetric cipher using a passphrase. This is a graphical frontend on top of GnuPG.

Asymmetric decryption and clipboard verification are also supported.


OpenPGP Applet does not handle passphrase input. Since it also does not offer terminal interaction unless explicitly run from there, it relies in practice on some kind of GnuPG agent such as pinentry, Seahorse 2.x or GNOME keyring 3.x to manage passphrase input.

'xclip' ( is used to get input from clipboard.
