I have Thunderbird 24.4.0 and Enigmail 1.5.2 installed. My OS is Kubuntu 13.10 x64. gpg-agent version 2.0.20-1ubuntu3 gnupg version 1.4.14-1ubuntu2.1 pinentry-qt4 version 0.8.1-1ubuntu2 kgpg version 126.96.36.199-0ubuntu0.1
I have only one profile in Thunderbird. One email account. I created a new key pair using kgpg. When trying to sign and send an email, I get an error: Send operation aborted. Error - bad passphrase.
I never get prompted to enter a passphrase. gpg.conf is configured to "use-agent" but commenting that out doesn't do anything. I have no idea what I have to do to get a passphrase prompt.
Any assistance is appreciated.
Edit: Since it appears I am using gpg 1.4, do I have to use pinentry? What are the pros/cons of using it/not using it? Should I upgrade to gpg 2.0?
