Message signing/encryption with Thunderbird and Kleopatra

How do I make Thunderbird use my certificates stored in Kleopatra (KDE)? When I try to import certificates it says it's looking for PKCS12 files, but I can't find any. I'm not sure where Kleopatra stores keys, but I assume it takes them from gnupg's directory (~/.gnupg). So how do I make the two play together?

Export your certificate and private key from Kleopatra (only PEM format supported). Convert the file to PKCS#12 format with the openssl pkcs12 command (find tutorials on Google). Import the result into Thunderbird's certificate manager.
