Sure. You need to tell gpg to use a different key for signing
gpg -s -u other-key
will work. If that other key is a subkey and tehre is also a smartcard
based subkey which is preferred over other-key you need to apped an '!',
gpg -s -u '0x1234567!'
The exclamation mark forces gpg to use exactly that subkey; the default
is to figure out what will be the best subkey (or primary key) to use.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Auschnahme regelt ein Bundeschgesetz.
