I've updated gnupg2/gpgsm from 2.0.11-1 to 2.0.12-1 (Debian sid)
Since that Balsa refuses to sign a message, there is a popup saying
gpgsm is unable to sign the message because the passphrase is wrong
(the passphrase is cached in my case).
I'm having the same issue.
Hmm, that's really strange. It sounds a little bit as if the agent
communication is broken. Can you please try the following:
- in a shell, run 'echo $GPG_AGENT_INFO' which should show something
like "/tmp/gpg-EKhTLm/S.gpg-agent:<pid>:1". Verify that the pipe and
the process (<pid>) exist;
The socket and process both exist.
- from the shell, run "gpg --sign" which should pop up the passphrase
dialogue (pinentry). If it doesn't, there is a communication problem
between gpg and the agent;
OK, no popup, just "You need a passphrase to unlock the secret key for..."
on the console.
Downgrading to gnupg2.x86_64 0:2.0.11-1.fc11 (from gnupg2.x86_64
0:2.0.12-1.fc11) seems to have fixed it. Other versions are:
