    Angry GnuPG

    I have been getting this message every time I attempt to sign an email in Thunderbird. This is a new installation of 11.1. I have successfully set it up with the same keys and the same versions of OpenSUSE and Thunderbird. I have removed and replaced Thunderbird. I have deleted and replaced the folders ~/.gnupg/ and ~/.thunderbird. I have a copy of pinentry loaded.

    What can I do here to get GnuPG working?

    :~/.gnupg> type pinentry
    pinentry is /usr/bin/pinentry

    enigmail> /usr/bin/gpg --charset utf8 --batch --no-tty --status-fd 2 --comment
    'Using GnuPG with SUSE - Enigmail: A simple interface for OpenPGP email security' -t --clearsign -u <jonesrn@
    lafayette.edu> --use-agent
    gpg: problem with the agent: No pinentry
    gpg: skipped "<jonesrn@lafayette.edu>": General error
    gpg: [stdin]: clearsign failed: General error
    enigmail.js: Enigmail.encryptMessageEnd: Error in command execution
    enigmail.js: Enigmail.encryptMessage: Error in command execution

    Thanks,

    I'm not sure I can help you entirely with the GPG side of things but in
    Thunderbird I use the Enigmail Add-On which has typically made my use of
    public key encryption (and for me specifically, signing) work really well
    without much work on my part. I'm running on SLED 11 x86_64 which is
    based on OpenSUSE 11.1.

    Good luck.

    I have the 0.95.7 Enigmail add-on.

    The bizare part is that the problem is only on my Precision 690. My Dell Inspiron 8500 and my EEEPC 1000H both have the same version of OpenSUSE 32bit 11.1, but I have no problem on either.
