On Kubuntu Trusty and before, I had the GnuPG agent set up such that it would only ask for the password occasionally, like this:
I have a
utf8-strings keyserver-options auto-key-retrieve default-key 68B8AA90 keyserver hkp://keys.gnupg.net use-agent encrypt-to 68B8AA90
pinentry-program /usr/bin/pinentry-qt4 default-cache-ttl 3600 max-cache-ttl 3600
Now after upgrading to Kubuntu Utopic, it asks for the password every single time! The password dialog looks different though, so I suggest that
pinentry-qt4 is not started at all.
How can I get it to remember my passphrase?
