'gpg2 -k' gives me the following error:
$ gpg2 -k
gpg: invalid item 'BZIP2' in preference string
gpg: invalid default preferences
But 'gpg -k' works fine. However, I to use gpg2 in my
Thunderbird-with-Enigmail email client because I've read in a few places
that gpg2 is better for desktop purposes
<https://linux.die.net/man/1/gpg2>. Also, Enigmail rejects gpg because
/usr/bin/gpg is 'out of date' (meaning it's not gpg2, I think) and seems
to REALLY want gpg2.
The error message makes it sound like the problem is in my gpg2
configuration. I don't see any zip settings in .gnupg2/gpg.conf nor do I
see a 'preferences string'.
I'm not sure when this started happening because I've been going without
Enigmail for a while on this computer.
How can I correct the preference string?
