PGP key photo viewing

Filed under: Blogging,Debian,Security,Ubuntu — kees @ 1:35 pm

Handy command line arguments for gpg:

gpg --list-options show-photos --fingerprint 0xdc6dc026

This is nice to examine someone’s PGP photo. You can also include it in --verify-options, depending on how/when you want to see the photo (for example, when doing key signings).

If gpg doesn’t pick the right photo viewer, you can override it with --photo-viewer 'eog %I' or similar.
