On Linux I would like to change the homedirectory from ~/.gnupg to

Defining GNUPGHOME has no effect on my Linux system while it worked on
Windows. Does this option not exist in GnuPG for Linux? How to define
something similar.

Because I want to use gnupg indirectly through other porgrams I can NOT
use a parameter such as "--homedir".

The only workaround I found was setting HOME to /something/else and use
/something/else/.gnupg . But this is ugly.

Any ideas?
