I'm new to this GPG usage. I dont need any internals. I am running a shell
script in which following line causes error :

gpg --yes --sign message.txt

It shows the following error:

gpg: no default secret key: secret key not available
gpg: signing failed: secret key not available

How can I solve this error, without modifying the command? (do I need to
change any settings). I am using gpg version (GnuPG) 1.4.16

>which gpg

is giving the output


I Tried with --default-key <something>

Still it dint work!!

Any suggestion to get past this error will be greatly helpful.

Thank you
