I suppose we are talking about Linux or some Unix derivative.

I run the following two commands on session start:
killall gpg-agent 2>/dev/null
eval "$(gpg-agent --daemon --default-cache-ttl 36000)"

Since I'm using KDE they are in a file called start-gpg-agent.sh that 
I've put into ~/.kde/env. Before that I used a custom ~/.xsession
