GPG & Mulberry

General

The Mulberry GPG plug-in supports PGP operations using GPG.

The plug-in is installed by default.

You must already have a working GPG installtion on your system - the plug-in calls that for all operations.

If the plug-in is installed but does not show up in the About Plug-ins dialog in Mulberry, the either GPG is not installed or is installed somewhere that Mulberry cannot detect it.

Windows

Download a GPG package for Windows from http://www.gnupg.org and install it.

Mulberry looks for the gpg executable by doing the following:

  1. First it looks for the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\GNU\GnuPG, and reads the value of the gpgProgram item them and uses that for the path.
  2. If the registry key is not present, it assumes the executable is at: C:\gnupg\gpg.exe.

You may need to create links etc to get it to work if it does not do so with the default config.

Mac OS X

Download a GPG package for Mac OS X from http://www.gnupg.org and install it.

Mulberry looks for the gpg executable at /usr/local/bin/gpg.

You may need to create links etc to get it to work if it does not do so with the default config.

Unix

Download a GPG package for Unix from http://www.gnupg.org and install it.

Mulberry will find gpg if it is on your path.
