I'm not sure what to tell you, it works just fine here when I go to start ->
utilities -> encryption tool as my regular user on a fresh install. The first time I ran it, it went ahead and prompted me to setup a new key, and did it just fie.

However, I did notice something which may be causing confusion. kgpg can only have a single session running at a time, and by default it "hides" in the
system tray (where klipper is), but you have to click the "<" arrow to expand the tray and see it. So if you already have it running (but hidden by the tray), it won't start a new one, or bring any GUI up, until you click on the tray icon.
