Front and back: KPGP and GPG

Tuesday, 6 July 2004, 4:08 PM EST

One of the virtues of Linux is that its Unix heritage has given it a powerful command line. Using the command line can be difficult though, and many people prefer to use GNOME or KDE to do their work. Fortunately, many developers choose to embrace Larry Wall's virtue of "laziness", and instead of choosing to reinvent the wheel, they create user friendly front-ends to common CLI apps.

This is the first article of an occasional series which intends to look at some of these front-ends, show the new user how to use them, and, most importantly, provide the corresponding commands for the "back-end" command for future reference - you never know when you might need to do something over an SSH connection, after all!
