gpg small error
« on: August 20, 2017, 01:10:20 pm »

Hello,
I encountered a small error while generating the keys for gpg on VL-7.2-RC2.
It shown the error for missing pinentry scripts.
This can easily be solved by downloading pinentry sources from https://www.gnupg.org/download/index.html and installing it manually.

Thanks so much for finding and sharing this info!

I brushed up the old SlackBuild for pinentry, and a package is now available in the 7.2 untested repo. The gnupg2 package has been rebuilt to add pinentry as a dependency. Users who do GSlapt/slapt-get upgrading after install will get the fix.

Happy to contribute somehow to this great community. By the way, perhaps GPA would be a nice package to add to the repository.
I installed it from sources and it is small and very handy for GPG users.
