EasyGPG

EasyGPG is an easy-to-use GUI for GPG that uses Zenity and XClip.

It is a single shell script, securely distributed as a signed (but not encrypted) PGP message in text form that contains a tar archive.

If you are using the Tor Browser, you may want to use EasyGPG's Tor Onion Service website instead of this page.

If there is a Tor SOCKS5 proxy listening at localhost on port 9050 or 9150, and curl is installed, EasyGPG and its installer will use that SOCKS5 proxy to install or update from EasyGPG's Tor Onion gopher hole. If Tor is not running, but I2P is, EasyGPG's I2P site will be used. Otherwise, EasyGPG and its installer will fall back on the EasyGPG items on Codeberg or the Internet Archive.

These 4 alternatives are
gopher://7hinc6ucgvwbcjjoe44lhzzxyjptb3da6tzl33oe7ezl2qgwlrkfe6yd.onion/
http://easygpg2.i2p/
https://archive.org/download/easygpg
and
https://codeberg.org/giXzkGsc/EasyGPG

To install EasyGPG, download https://codeberg.org/giXzkGsc/EasyGPG/raw/branch/main/EasyGPG-Installer.tar.gz and unpack it. Then open the resulting folder and double-click Install EasyGPG. The installer will download the latest version of EasyGPG, and then prompt for a location to which to save your new EasyGPG folder. By default, the new EasyGPG folder will be named easygpg, but you can use any name you like. When installation is complete, some windows will pop up. Read these, and you are on your way to using EasyGPG.

EasyGPG-Docs.tar.gz contains more documentation for EasyGPG. Unpack it to find out more about installing and using EasyGPG.

versions.tar.xz is a collection of past versions of EasyGPG and its installer.

If, for any reason, updating or installing from Codeberg fails, EasyGPG will fall back to the Internet Archive. To update, it needs only a tiny text file called version.txt and a PGP message in text form called easygpg.asc.

Using a signed tar archive in text form has advantages. It is signed, so verification can always occur, and it is text, so it can be saved with a web browser using "Save page as," stored on pastebins, and backed up to the Wayback Machine and similar sites.

For as long as Codeberg and the Internet Archive survive, I will prefer them to any alternative (other than Tor and I2P). The Archive's and Codeberg's values are my values.
