Hello! I'm using OSX 10.9 and have installed gpg (and gpg2, if it matters) through homebrew and git-annex through cabal. I also installed https://github.com/joeyh/git-remote-gcrypt like the UI told me.

Whenever I'm trying to add an encrypted remote through the web UI I get a lot of "You need a passphrase to unlock the secret key for user:" on stdout and, obviously, I can't enter my passphrase (If I could I wouldn't make this post to begin with :)) Is this behavior normal? What should I do to work around it? I did also try to not use the web UI by using this command: git annex initremote rsync.net type=gcrypt gitrepo=user@host:directory encryption=pubkey keyid=X

Because of this I can't copy files to my remotes. All I get is:

$ git annex copy --to rsync.net copy MySecretFile (gpg) You need a passphrase to unlock the secret key for user: "user" 4096-bit RSA key, ID X, created 2013-10-01 (main key ID Y)

(checking rsync.net...) (to rsync.net...) gpg: no valid addressees gpg: [stdin]: encryption failed: No user ID

failed

Yes, I am using gpg-agent. When other applications ask for my passphrase I get the pinentry dialog from GPGTools, just like I've configured it in ~/.gnupg/gpg-agent.conf, but this isn't the case with git-annex.

If I remove GPGTools from /usr/local/bin with: ``brew link --overwrite gnupg && brew link --overwrite gnupg2'' it works slightly better.

I get that pinentry dialog I want but when I do a copy I get:

$ git annex copy --to rsync.net copy MySecretFile (gpg) (checking rsync.net...) (to rsync.net...) gpg: no valid addressees gpg: [stdin]: encryption failed: no such user id

failed

--debug shows me it is executing gpg llke so:

gpg ["--batch","--no-tty","--use-agent","--quiet","--trust-model","always","--batch","--encrypt","--no-encrypt-to","--no-default-recipient","--force-mdc","--no-textmode"]
