    Have newest GNUPG. Trying to get AES keys but it's not showing up when I do --gen-key, only this:

    gpg (GnuPG) 1.4.9; Copyright (C) 2008 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
    This is free software: you are free to change and redistribute it.
    There is NO WARRANTY, to the extent permitted by law.

    Please select what kind of key you want:
    (1) DSA and Elgamal (default)
    (2) DSA (sign only)
    (5) RSA (sign only)


    How can I get AES?

    Thanks!

    SOLVED:

    After reading many man pages, and tinkering about, here's the solution:

    gpg --cipher-algo AES256 ~/foo


    Hope that helps! Post here if you have any further questions.
