Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

After reinstalling my system, I copied the .gnupg folder from backup into my new home folder.

Unfortunately, Seahorse does not read-in the passwords from that folder.

It does pick-up the ssh keys from the .ssh folder and the certificate keys from .gnupg.

With a previous reinstall, it did pick-up the passwords.

Seahorse does not read the passwords from $HOME/.gnupg, but from $HOME/.gnome2/keyrings.
