When I try to encrypt an e-mail to someone with my PGP key, the pinentry-tty prompt tries to request my key’s password, which breaks the UI.
Isn’t that a problem of any TUI application? How is it supposed to work? How does it work with
mutt(for example)? Wouldn’t
pinentry-curses(or the appropriate
pinentryfor your GUI environment) work better?
After deliberation in the IRC, I was told this could possibly be solved. I would rather not use pinentry-curses because my main use of my pgp key is signing git commits and a simple prompt is less disruptive. I refuse to use a graphical pinentry program.
I’m not sure how it works with mutt, I’ve always found it uncomfortable to use so I avoided it.
