Missed the --homedir option? gpg will create an empty .gnupg/ directory in the
home directory of that test user. As the test user, do:
$ cd ~
$ ls -a
Probably an easier way is to import the keyring into the .gnupg folder,
that'll allow you to set options in the conf file (which is also reset per
user). The warning about secmem should be solvable - I'm sure others here
will help with that but you would be best providing more information on
exactly how you have used chmod.
If the keyring is < 500 keys, it's not a problem to have duplicate keyrings -
one for each user. You can either add the --refresh-keys to the lexicon used
by ordinary users or leave the keyrings alone if the keys don't change often.
It's not usual for everyone to need the same keys, that's why GnuPG runs with
a lot of configuration and all keyrings dictated by that user alone. There's
not much for root to do, once installation is complete.
