I’m trying to get gpg working with enigmail and thunderbird. After a bit of debugging it appears that when enigmail issues gpg commands gpg is failing to find the key file. I was able to duplicate the problem on the command line.
returns my list of keys as expected. However the command:
gpg --list-keys --charset utf-8
Gives the error:
gpg: error reading key: public key not found
This is one of two options that enigmail uses that seems to cause problems, the other is “–status-fd 2”.
