... the gpg-agent is not available in this session...
When running some application and triggering the
gpg command to decrypt a password, the error message is displayed and the password input appears. Expected behaviour is to use the gpg-agent to retrieve the password.
Setting the TTY environment variable in
.bashrc did not help.
The problem is in a version mismatch between
gpg is on eg. version 1.7, the
gpg-agent is running on version 2.xxx. Switch over to
gpg2 to approach the same source version, import the required private keys into
gpg2 and try again.
gpg --list-keys .... gpg --output outputfile_pub.gpg --armor --export ****** gpg --output outputfile_sec.gpg --armor --export-secret-key ***** gpg --import outputfile_pub.gpg gpg --import outputfile_sec.gpg
Simple, but easy to forget:
$ gpg --edit-key $key gpg> trust ..... gpg> save
