Folks, I’m trying to rationalise the openpgp keys on a new install. To that end I’ve created in T’bird, exported to gpg added an address/ id and then re-imported to T’bird. So, far so good.
Then, I’ve tried to confirm that gpg is using hkps://keys.openpgp.org as the default, as described here: Gnupg2 changes from upstream and this where I’ve run into confusion. As a quick check I looked in seahorse and discovered ldap://keyserver.pgp.com set as default - it won’t accept hkps://keys.openpgp.org and responds ‘Not a valid Key Server address’… Hmm, so I looked for
~/.gnupg/gpg.conf - as per
man gpg - and, it doesn’t exist… And, I’ve looked for
~/.gnupg/dirmngr.conf as described here: Gnupg2 changes from upstream but, it doesn’t exist either. Then I thought I just run
grep -r "ldap://keyserver.pgp.com" to find the relevant file - but, nothing is returned… Ditto if I run that on
I wonder if someone could tell me where I’m going wrong configuring gnupg?
