I want to use gpg-agent (and its gpg.conf and gpg-agent.conf files) when I invoke gpg (from Enigmail or otherwise) but Ubuntu 12.04 uses seahorse as the default 'agent.' While seahorse may or may not read these conf files, how can I force gpg to bypass Ubuntu's setup and use gpg-agent?
This is what I see when I ask the terminal to return
user@user:~$ echo $GNU_AGENT_INFO /tmp/keyring-xxxxxx/gpg:0:1
Following the gpg man page, I have tried adding the following lines to my gpg.conf file without desired result:
PS: In addition, does seahorse use equivalent files of the same path and name (
gpg-agent.conf)? If not, what are the paths and names I could use to reach equivalent result?
