I'm glad it's working now.

can you explain the pinentry problem you're seeing?  I'm afraid the bad
ownership of your files was distracting from any other problems you were

One simple way to test pinentry (without gpg or gpg-agent in the mix)

     echo getpin | pinentry

that should show you a dialog box that prompts you for a password.  you
can put in whatever you like, and it should be emitted on the console
where you ran the above command.
