System login with gnupg smartcard (yubikey, p-card, rsa token, etc)

gnupg with poldi can be used for system login. There is a thread asking whether it is possible to use gpg for system login. A new tip section explaining gnupg smartcard for logging into Arch Linux system is a nice addition here.

User configuration files not created

Per the wiki, it states, "You will find skeleton files in /usr/share/gnupg. These files are copied to ~/.gnupg the first time gpg is run if they do not exist there."

I could very well be doing something wrong so I'd ask that this could be verified. If we need to copy skel configuration files, it should be clearly explained in the wiki shouldn't it?

I was unable to import public keys until I manually created a blank ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf with just keyserver pgp.mit.edu in it.

I also found this when searching for info, https://manned.org/gpgv2/2862e42d. It states: There are no configuration files and only a few options are implemented.

/usr/bin/pinentry is no longer a symlink

This Commit introduced a small shell script to automatically decide the pinentry dialog to use, which makes the description in GnuPG#Installation obsolete. Should I change it?

Sure, go ahead. The section in its current form is indeed wrong and needs updating. Furthermore GnuPG#pinentry and GnuPG#Agent complains end of file are misleading. -- Edh (talk) 15:43, 28 April 2018 (UTC)
I adapted the last two sections but left the original introduction for you to edit. Feel free to discuss any changes here if you are unsure. -- Edh (talk) 15:55, 28 April 2018 (UTC)
