This file should be called Veracrypt_PGP_PUBLIC_KEY.asc
In the Instructions I have read these are the steps:
1. download veracrypt=1.19-setup.tar.bz2 ------ DONE
2, validate signature on the file using PGP. ----- DONE
3. Use NEMO file manager to go to /home/Downloads
4. Right-click VeraCrypt_PGP_public_key.asc and select "Open with import key"
My problem may be twofold. I put my veracrypt files in another file on my desktop, the same directory where I keep my personal pgp files.
But I do not find any file anywere named
But I do not see how you can get a file named that.
When you download the Veracrypt public key you are just copying the public key then pasting it into a text file. You can name it anything you want.
Since I have completed some of the process, should I go back and re-do everything?
Will pgp allow me to very and import the same keys again?
Is the mistake here not downloading everything into Downloads?
I just found a file on the veracrypt downloads site called:
PGP Signature for VeraCrypt 1.19 user Guide
When I downloaded and tried to open it, Linux said I could not open it in the red banner at the top of the screen. But when I clicked "cancel" to get rid of it, the Veracrypt public key appeared.
I then renamed this Veracrypt_PGP_PUBLIC_KEY.asc
Then according to instructions I right clicked this file, but there should have been a choice to "Open with Import Key" But there was not.
Any assistance in unraveling this would be appreciated so I can install Veracrypt.
