Deleting the key on the smartcard depends on the smartcard.  The
~/.gnupg/private-keys-v1.d/XXXX...XX.key for a smartcard based key is
only a stub storing the serial number of the card for user convenience
(“please insert card no. NNN”).



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
