Hello war,

Yes gpg and gpg2 use the same gpg.conf file, the .gnupg directory will be created on your fist usage  gpg or gpg2.

On debian, the first time you use it a generic gpg.conf file is also generated.

Do you use a smartcard ? or do you want to use one ?

You can first look at this link :, seems a pretty good fist guide.

Best Regards
