I'm calling out to
gpg2 in a CLI script for symmetrical encryption of a local file. It appears to have
gpg-agent prompt for a passphrase via some CLI, text based UI. As long as I'm around to enter the passphrase everything works fine. If I'm not, however, it eventually fails out with this message:
gpg-agent: command get_passphrase failed: Operation cancelled gpg: cancelled by user gpg: error creating passphrase: Operation cancelled gpg: symmetric encryption of `XXXX.tar' failed: Operation cancelled
Is there any way to turn off this timeout entirely?
I would want the passphrase prompt to remain on the screen indefinitely until I enter something.
