Description David Anderson 2005-03-07 14:50:21 UTC
Version:           1.2 (using KDE 3.3.2-1.7.2.kde, Fedora Core release 2 (Tettnang))
Compiler:          gcc version 3.3.3 20040412 (Red Hat Linux 3.3.3-7)
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.7-1.494.2.2

I use kgpg to encrypt a file that contains my passwords.

When I decrypt, my only option is to decrypt to a new file, e.g. Passwords.txt.asc -> Passwords.txt

I normally don't want to have the file permanently decrypted - I just want to read it. kgpg should have an option to decrypt-to-display as well as or instead of to decrypt-to-file.

Very interesting, the systray-icon has such an option, you can drop a file onto the icon and a popup opens thats asks me if I want to save or view the decrypted file.
Unfortunately that setting is only available for the icon and not for the konqueror action.

It should be enough to provide a .desktop file for mime type application/pgp-encrypted that call "kgpg -s %F"
