If GnuPG is installed on a system with existing user accounts, it is sometimes required to populate the GnuPG home directory with existing files. Especially a 'trustlist.txt' and a keybox with some initial certificates are often desired. This script helps to do this by copying all files from '/etc/skel/.gnupg' to the home directories of the accounts given on the command line. It takes care not to overwrite existing GnuPG home directories.

addgnupghome is invoked by root as:

addgnupghome account1 account2 ... accountn
