Hmmm. I created a new key with gpg, choose option 1, and set the keyID of
that new key in my options file as default key. I noticed it took gpg a LOT
more time to generate a key than pgp 5.
However, I get the same error when I use that key for signing when I set the
keyID of the ElGamal key as default key. When I set the keyID of the DSA key
as default, it works, but then it uses my old RSA key for encryption, which
was not quite what I intended.
Whan I remove these keys from my secret keyring the newly generated key is
Is there some option to set the default encryption and sign keys separately?
I don't want to delete the RSA key.
