Description

This is a recommendation from the 1st Tails UX session at NUMA.
The OpenPGP applet is very hard to find, as it's not located in the normal menus.

Do we actually want to convert our applet into a proper application? I think it's the way to go. Thoughts? Volunteers?

#7 Updated by nodens over 5 years ago

I think it is, too, I'd volunteer but :
- I'm quite busy currently and I have a hard time already to find time to work on the "simple" things (such as #6507)
- I'm not really a developer and it'll take time ;)

That said, the way I see it the best way would be to have a standalone application, and use a DBus listener that could be called both by a traditionnal applet (so it would work in classic desktop environnement such as xfce) and a gnome-shell extension.

Anyway, design is not my thing at all so even if I'm able to work on this I'd need some help for the UI.
