Once you have the kgpg icon (a lock) in your task bar, you should be able to 
right click on it, go to configure kgpg, click on misc, then there is an 
install shredder button.  Now, this is done on my system with dapper and kde 
3.5.5.  I can't speak for edgy as I haven't loaded it yet.  

You need more time; and you probably always will.
