I moved gpg and put this wrapper script in /usr/bin/gpg:
salias --context $base /usr/bin/real/$base $@
This looks correct. I think I just found the problem; if some of the
options/arguments to GnuPG have whitespace (e.g., like many
comments do), the shell script passes them on like:
gpg --comment pgpenvelope 2.9.0 --encrypt
...which is obviously an illegal call; somehow I've just got to get the
wrapper-script to perform the proper quoting/argument passing. I'll have
a new release as soon as I find a solution.
I tried to remove the shell-script-wrapper and put the gpg back in its
usual location (/usr/bin). An then I set the alias: alias gpg='salias gpg'
But mailcrypt does not seem to recognize or use the alias at all:
Correct; this is actually primary reason for the making of salias;
programs calling GnuPG cannot handle the shell aliases/env vars.
