Oh, good to know.

So I tested it with dm-crypt and got another error:

$ g13 -r 764C2156D8AC31D0 --type dm-crypt --create container.g13 
g13: can't connect to 'g13-syshelp': IPC "connect" Aufruf
fehlgeschlagen G13
g13: (is userv and its gnupg-g13-syshelp script installed?)
g13: error creating a new container: IPC "connect" Aufruf
fehlgeschlagen <G13>

GnuPG 2 is installed with all dependencies. Installed versions:

# dnf list "gnupg2*"
Installierte Pakete
gnupg2.x86_64  2.2.5-1.fc27  
gnupg2-smime.x86_64 2.2.5-1.fc27

There is neither a command or package named userv, nor a script called
'gnupg-g13-syshelp' in the repositories. The binary g13-syshelp is

Has anybody some suggestions? or should I file a bug report against the
RPM package?
