That would mean that GnuPG is in /usr/local/bin/gpg

So probably /usr/bin/gpg2 is the distribution-provided older version, hence your

You should probably configure all your GnuPG-using software to use
/usr/local/bin/gpg. Also, it might make sense to explicitly configure all those
tools to use a non-default GNUPGHOME. That way, should one of your tools
accidentally pick /usr/bin/gpg2, it will hopefully also pick the default
homedir, and not interfere with all your correctly-configured tools. This is
just an idea that occured to me and is completely untested. Then again, mixing
these versions with identical homedirs is tested and has failed the test, so I'm
hoping for a net improvement ;-).



I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
