try ~/.gnupg/options. This file contains all your settings. Among others
your keyserver, which is a server where public keys are stored. If you
don't use a keyserver, you need to manually import every public key you
need. If you uncomment the keyserver option and set it to a valid
keyserver (pgpkeys.mit.edu, horowitz.surfnet.nl etc), gpg will contact the
keyserver to look up any public keys you don't have.
