I found my key, as I had installed on my iMac also, and had signed email from me on it.
But, after trying in Keychain Access to retrieve or find the key.....NO KEY FOUND.

What the h* has happened???
HELP please.

    Hi Steve,

    Below pls find the info that is requested in the form.
    The one I cannot help you with is CONSOLE. The damned thing hangs my system indefinite each time I just open it.
    Are there some files I can kill prior to opening it, to open clean again? It is probably overloaded with a million logs.

    Thanks for your help with GPGtools. I am about to call it a bad day and discourage anyone I know from risking to use it.



    GPGtools 1.0b7
    GPGtools Version 2011.12.24
    OS X 10.7.3
    What steps will reproduce the problem?

    I intall GPGtools
    I get to CREATE NEW KEY screen and hit enter (with my email and name as I had been successful yesterday)...
    What is the expected result?

    I would expect that the list in the window fills with my PUB and my SEC keys, and the one from GPGtools.
    What happens instead?

    I saw nothing. Empty list, not even GPG is filled in.
    I tried SEARCH FOR KEY.
    Provide any additional information, link a screenshot and debug output if possible.

    You've seen an empty GPG KEYCHAIN ACCESS page, I do not need to grab the screen.
    Forget the consol logs. Console hangs my system. Totally. I won't touch it anymore.

    If the Console hangs your system you should probably use a tool like OnyX to fix permission problems, clean your logs and other stuff.
    Usually shouldn't have no problem to launch.

    Your recommendation worked with the OnyX! All clear. The messes have all been taken care. And the signatures are back.

    Thanks! I will continue to recommend you!

    1. Question
    What is the disadvantage of the Open version, for free, vs the paid version?

    Very glad it helped and that it wasn't the fault of our tools.
    Paid version of OnyX? Never seen that before.
