    I don't know if it will solve your problem. But you could try switching from "gdm" to "kdm". You might first need to install "kdm".

    After login to Gnome, you will probably then need to manually open the login keyring (via seahorse as application).

    When you login to Gnome from KDM, the real "gpg-agent" is started instead of the seahorse emulation.

    Tried but didn't change anything.

    I am no gpg expert but I am using gpg2 and I thought it is fully compatible with gpg1 - is there any reason then to keep gpg1? I can exchange encrypted emails with a friend who is using gpg1 on Slackware without problems. I just tried to sign a textfile:
    Code:
    uli@linux-dfsr:~/Documents> gpg2 -sab InterfaceNames.txt 
    gpg: enabled debug flags: memstat
    
    You need a passphrase to unlock the secret key for
    user: "Uli Fuerst (......) <uli.fuerst@......co.nz>"
    2048-bit RSA key, ID 4C63D087, created 2013-07-13

    After using the passphrase the signature file was created. I use KDE and there using Kmail where GPG is fully integrated. I put the encrypt and sign buttons in the toolbar and (lucky for me) so far no problems here.

    I would strongly discourage this. GNOME does not support alternative display managers.

    If you read my earlier posts in this thread, you'll see that's not the case. GNOME 3.16 and earlier is incompatible with gpg2.

    Anyway, GNOME 3.18 on up will be compatible with gpg2 but no longer compatible with the original gpg. This is very good news for openSUSE: it means you're not doomed to broken gpg integration anymore. See: https://mail.gnome.org/archives/dist.../msg00000.html
