newbee entropy question

I set up a separate user to encrypt data files using a different public key
and I get the following error:

gpg: fatal: can't connect to `/home/newuser/.gnupg/entropy': No such file or

I've tried copying the entropy file over to the new users .gnupg directory
and get the following error:

cp: /home/olduser/.gnupg/entropy: Operation not supported on socket

Is there only one instance of this file allowed on the server?

Any help would be appreciated.
