Daniel Kahn Gillmor,

Further I would like to give the output below when I ran ./configure
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `QtCore.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'QtCore' found

        Pinentry v0.8.4 has been configured as follows:

Please help us to resolve the issue.

Daniel Kahn Gillmor,

Thank you for your reply. Yes after sending the Mail to you, I installed the Pinentry v0.8.4. But it gives the error " No package 'QtCore' found. We are using Sun Solaris 10.

P.S: The Emphasis is, once you have reached Excellence, do not stop. I was just created the Passphrase with the Famous Phrase “Excellence is not an Adjective but a Verb”, so that I can remember it..

your screenshot suggests that you're doing all of this on some remote machine via ssh (it looks like you're using putty on windows).  You haven't mentioned what operating system you're using, though.

Anyway, gpg might want to use pinentry to gather the passphrase from the user, and it's not clear that you have the right environment set up for pinentry.

whatever package manager you have, can you install pinentry-curses and try again?


PS "Excellence is not an Adjective but a Verb" -- it's actually a noun :)
