Hmm. But as far as I can tell, that's on a per-invokation basis. Extract from the man-page: --default-key name Use name as default user ID for signatures. If this is not used the default user ID is the first user ID found in the secret keyring. I would like to make gpg always go for my key even in response to a "clean" invokation. This is good for (1) convenience, and (2) applications might not support using --default-key. I *could* do this by exporting all keys I really need, deleting my keyring entirely, create my new default key, and re-import the keys I exported. But is this the only way?
