Before filing a bug on bugzilla, I wanted to make sure I was using seahorse's nautilus extension correctly.

I wanted to try to try to encrypt a file using the GnomeKeyring PGP feature.

I installed seahorse-nautilus and if I right-click on a file/folder, it does it indeed give me the option to encrypt it. I created a PGP key for myself (unsigned for now), and I am trying to encrypt a file with it.

I select the file, and right click on it. Nautilus allows me to select "Encrypt" but after selecting my PGP key, and pressing OK, nothing happens.

Do I simply not know how to use the software? Is this a bug?

For those who don't know, see https://wiki.gnome.org/GnomeKeyring/ .
