While there are several tools on the Linux side, KGPG is the easiest to get working (I’ve worked on Gnome and KDE graphical user interfaces to Linux). As mentioned earlier, an excellent tool to use for encryption includes KGPG. Installing KGPG is straightforward, especially on Debian Linux distributions such as Edubuntu, SimplyMepis, and others. You can use the built-in, graphical Synaptic to get the program or at the command line, use Apt-Get (e.g. “apt-get install kgpg”).

KGPG is a nice front-end to GPG, which is already installed on your Linux system. An easy start tutorial is available online. Unbelievably, KGPG is easier to get going than the MacGPG Tools mentioned earlier!
