Thanks Mika,

I have done as you have suggested. It is to be noted that whenever I install a new Linux
disro I always run gpg --version - Linux Mint does not create ~/.gnupg automatically one has
to create the directory (folder) by hand -as this function's not  and there's no way to set
how long the passphrase will last as this function is not available in any gpg-agent.
