FW: Getting the gpg to work with a different user.

I started using gpg as a separate user. Now if I change the user and run the gpg command, it gives me an error that "could not open the pubring.pgp as it is a keyblock resource and could not create
keyring" as stated in the mail below.
How can I proceed even to import new keys in other users.
