    Hey Brandon,

    could you elaborate a little more on what you are trying to do. Afaik, Tails is for Linux only so GPGTools can't be of any help I think?

    All the best,

    Ok so the Format for the USB should be Fat32 and since I have REFIt installed mt computer will then see it when I boot because I used the usb installer and then couldn't boot from it because it didn't show up? I have since installed REfiT on my mac but haven't restarted. I know that GPGtols only runs on mac but I wanted to know if Tails has it preinstalled? I am running mountain lion. But my Macbook has lion.

    Tails doesn't have it preinstalled. You can't use GPGTools in Tails. For further information you can bring this up with the Tails team. Nothing we can do currently.

    Sorry and all the best, steve
