Evolution is using sub-key instead of publi key. How can I change this,

the evolution only calls either gpg2 or gpg binary with some arguments
and that's all. If you make the default behaviour of the gpg2 or gpg
use public keys, not subkeys, then you'll make it working for the
evolution too. Though I do not understand what is wrong with the
subkey. I'd expect that gpg2/gpg knows well why it chose the subkey,
instead of the public key (well, "public key", they both are public,
when it's a subkey of the public key, no?).

How exactly do I make it default? Please? Do I do it in the terminal, or
are the settings to be found here in Evolution, please?

GnuPG actually uses a signing-only key as the master key, and creates an
encryption subkey automatically. Without a subkey for encryption, you
can't have encrypted e-mails with GnuPG at all...
