The seahorse agent is a nice alternative, but please be sure that you have the very latest CVS version. Older ones used to tweak your gpg config files in a quite unfriendly way...

Also note that seahorse does not support gpgsm passphrase gathering (needed for s/mime etc.), nor the supfer-safe ncurses mode (if you are *very* paranoid and enter you passphrase on a virtual terminal rather than via X11).
