GPGME-1.11.1

Introduction to GPGME

The GPGME package is a C library that allows cryptography support to be added to a program. It is designed to make access to public key crypto engines like GnuPG or GpgSM easier for applications. GPGME provides a high-level crypto API for encryption, decryption, signing, signature verification and key management.

This package is known to build and work properly using an LFS-8.2 platform.

GPGME Dependencies

Required

Libassuan-2.5.1

Optional

Doxygen-1.8.14 (for API documentation), GnuPG-2.2.6 (required if Qt or SWIG are installed; used during the testsuite), Clisp-2.49, Python-2.7.14, Qt-5.10.1, and/or SWIG-3.0.12 (for language bindings)

Installation of GPGME

Install GPGME by running the following commands:

./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-gpg-test &&
make

To test the results, you should have GnuPG-2.2.6 installed and remove the --disable-gpg-test above. Issue: make check.

Now, as the root user:

make install

Command Explanations

--disable-gpg-test: if this parameter is not passed to configure, the test programs are built during make stage, which requires GnuPG-2.2.6. This parameter is not needed if GnuPG-2.2.6 is installed.

Contents

Installed Program: gpgme-config and gpgme-tool
Installed Libraries: libgpgme-pthread.so and libgpgme.so
Installed Directory: /usr/share/common-lisp/source/gpgme

Short Descriptions

gpgme-config

is used to obtain GPGME compilation and linking information.

gpgme-tool

prints fingerprint and keyid with keyservers.

libgpgme-pthread.so

contains the GPGME API functions for applications using pthread.

libgpgme.so

contains the GPGME API functions.
