Ok. I have to say that I don't have any experience with the builtin facilit=
as I use the plugin myself (but it is somewhat experimental, so I'd have be=
surprised if SuSE shipped it. But one never knows...)

Have a look at your ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf (or 'options', in the same directory)=
file. Is there any 'use-agent' directive? (There shouldn't, just checking).

If you create a new user with all the default settings, does it fail there,=
too? Perhaps it's just one of your config files borken.

But I'm in the dark, really, perhaps you should ask in a KDE or SuSE mailin=
list/support forum? When you can sign ordinary files with gpg, I guess the=
problem is not with gpg but with kmail.
