I'm running XFCE (Thunar 1.6.2) and trying to encrypt the directory but with "gpg" I can only encrypt files not the directory with a sub-directories.
I tried to right click on a directory and select option "Create Archive" but it will not create file "directory.tar.gz" it works only on files not directories.
The current solution is to:
Code:
tar czf directory_name.tar.gz directory_name/
gpg -ea -r 7B4A7458 directory_name.tar.gz


I have noticed there is on ubuntu "gpgdir - recursive directory encryption with GnuPG."
"gpgdir" is a perl script that uses the CPAN GnuPG::Interface perl module to recursively encrypt and decrypt directories using gpg.

How do I find it and install it on Gentoo?
