It turns out there is a package called seahorse-plugins that for some reason is not installed by default but is required for all this GPG stuff to work. I think it used to be called gedit-plugins several distributions ago, but that package no longer exists.
So, install it with:
sudo aptitude install seahorse-plugins
Then, to add the clipboard capabilities, right click on a panel, choose "Add to Panel," and choose "Clipboard Text Encryption" applet.

to cleanup filenames of all MP3 files in the given directory, for example. It removes spaces and replaces special characters with plain ones (i.e. replaces u with accent with plain "u"). It has options, but if you just want the basics all you have to do is something like the above.

W: GPG error: http://archive.canonical.com jaunty Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 40976EAF437D05B5
W: GPG error: http://download.virtualbox.org jaunty Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY DCF9F87B6DFBCBAE
W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-da...jaunty/Release
W: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
The fix for this is to re-download the keys using the hexidecimal numbers given in the error (I bolded them above).
NOTE: Your hexadecimal numbers may be different then mine, so make sure to use the hexadecimals numbers in your error, not mine.
Type this command into the terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal)
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys #don't actually run this line yet
And then add the hexadecimal numbers to the command (again, these are my keys from my error. Make sure to use your own):
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 40976EAF437D05B5 DCF9F87B6DFBCBAE 2EBC26B60C5A2783 A8A515F046D7E7CF 6E871C4A881574DE 28A8205077558DD0 D739676F7613768D 8C851674F96FD737 C0B56813051D8B58 4874D3686E80C6B7 60D11217247D1CFF 5A9A06AEF9CB8DB0 6D975C4791E7EE5E 5A9BF3BB4E5E17B5 7FB8BEE0A1F196A8

sudo nmap 192.168.1.*
for example to release its hounds to search out interesting IPs on that subnet. There are many other ways to use it, but this is a basic start. For full documentation type man nmap or search for nmap documentation on the web.
