It seems you are using the gpg-agent.  You need to allow admin commands
for scdaemon: Put a line


into ~/.gnupg/scdaemon.conf and kill a running scdaemon.

If this does not work, run gpg with the options "-v --debug 2048" to see
what is going on.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Auschnahme regelt ein Bundeschgesetz.
