Hi All,

Am at a loss now. I've Thunderbird 31 and Enigmail 1.7

Since this upgrade I've had various issues - unable to sign unable to encrypt - I get an
error message from Enigmail "Error - bad passphrase" - when I've not even entered it at the

Also KGpg comes up with the following error Gnupg failed to start - "gpg: option file
`/home/david/.gnupg/gpg.conf': No such file or directory."

Kleopatra - Check that gpg-agent is running and that the GPG_AGENT_INFO variable is set and

david at laptop1:~$ gpg-agent
gpg-agent: no gpg-agent running in this session

when I type david at laptop1:~$ gpg
gpg: Go ahead and type your message ...

and  david at laptop1:~$ gpg2
gpg: Go ahead and type your message ...

But sometimes gpg-agent is running...............

Am at a loss what to do -

“See the sanity of the man! No gods, no angels, no demons, no body. Nothing of the
kind.Stern, sane,every brain-cell perfect and complete even at the moment of death. No
delusion.” -
