How do I get going again with GPGTools with a new computer and new OS X.

I've downloaded GPGTools onto a new Macbook, with Lion OS X. How do I get GPG Keychain Access to show my sec key? As is I can't find any keys: "Searching for key failed. Code = 0".

I know about the issues with the Apple Mail plug ins, but believe there is a preliminary version available. I may give that a try, but first I just want to get the basic operation going so I can encrypt documents.

    I think the problem is the "Create mobile account at login" thingy. Could you please uncheck that, confirm and reboot and verify that things gone rogue or are still working perfectly?

    Done and done. Everything works fine, though everything has been stable since last night as I said. I guess from here I just must hold thumbs and hope it doesn't revert.

    Any idea what I have disabled with that mobile account thing?

    What I believe is that through the active directory stuff some of your users files were modified or stored not locally but on a server or something or in a temporary state.
    Unfortunately I'm not familiar with Active Directory integration in mac os x so this is all just speculation but it would kind of explain why you're .gnupg folder information behaved so weirdly.

    64 posts, that's a new record :) Really glad we finally sorted this out and hope it stays that way.
    I'll close this discussion for now, but feel free to re-open it anytime if you run into problems again!
