Using pass with gpg-agent

I first set up gpg-agent in my .xinitrc file, and was unable to use it with pass. Pass appears to require the $GPG_AGENT_INFO variable to be set in order to utilize the functionality, which may make the /etc/profile.d/ solution in GnuPG#gpg-agent more favorable.

Mention need to trust key?

I found that, although I could use my gpg key to encrypt files locally as usual, pass would not accept my key for encryption purposes until I used gpg --edit-key <ID> to trust my key. Would it be worth mentioning this? I've been using gpg to encrypt files for years with no problems, so I couldn't understand why pass caused gpg to refuse to do what seemed to be essentially the same thing. --cfr (talk) 16:28, 29 October 2017 (UTC)

I remember setting it up and having to trust all keys from my collaborators... however I cannot find the documentation that led me to that... If you've just ran through it you should take a shot of putting it in this page - storrgie 16:43, 29 October 2017 (UTC)
I've reproduced the issue and can confirm the trust level must be set to ultimate. I've added a sentence to the GnuPG setup note and also added a troubleshooting section describing the issue in more detail. I also can't locate a source for this upstream, I stumbled across it in someone else's blog describing their setup (read: not authoritative). If inserting these instructions without an authoritative source counts as "original research" and should be avoided, go ahead and cut it. LeftyAce (talk)

dmenu downgrade doesn't help

"Note: If using passmenu causes the current window to lose focus, downgrade dmenu to 4.8"

- doesn't help ( Don't know who and when found that. In Gnome Shell the result is one line above the current window.

Also the current page of dmenu doesn't include the subsection which is referenced here. Ynikitenko (talk) 19:58, 22 November 2020 (UTC)
