I don't use gpg mail plugin and need only gnupg and GPG services. Is it possible to install MacGPG and GPG services separately, each from github? And if i'll install GnuPG for OS X instead of MacGPG, will it work with GPG services?

    Hi ruziwoheto,

    welcome to the GPGTools community support platform. Sorry you are having problems using GPG Suite.

    To install only some components coming with GPG Suite, you can use the "Customize" option in the installer. There you can de-select the components you do not want to be installed.

    As for GnuPG 2.1.x, it should (TM) work. But it has not been tested and would be considered highly experimental at the moment. We've done some quick tests, ran into bugs. Those have been fixed in the meantime, so now back to testing. If you want to test this, feel free to do so. For a productive work environment gpg 2.0 is recommended.

    All the best,
