You cannot pass the passphrase on the command line for security reasons, so - --passphrase-fd "My Pass Phrase" won't work as --passphrase-fd expects a file descriptor, not the pass phrase. So either you pass a known fd or just 0 to enter the passphrase on STDIN. - -- Malte Starostik PGP: 1024D/D2F3C787 [C138 2121 FAF3 410A 1C2A 27CD 5431 7745 D2F3 C787] -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.0.4 (GNU/Linux) Comment: For info see iD8DBQE7s570VDF3RdLzx4cRArNuAKC1k9tgFJdIdiPgM9HRZw7gvxejXwCcDu5H XsmKmfFUpFOpKapQQxJh+NQ= =qi7H -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
