Can not add new passwords for some reason #454

I have reinstalled my laptop, imported my GPG public / private key, installed QtPass and cloned my password store to ~/.password-store (using Kubuntu 19.04). I can read passwords, but I can not add new passwords:

gpg: can't create no such file or directory
gpg [stdin]: encryption failed: No such file or directory

I have been search through the issues here and tried te following:

  1. Made sure I have imported the keys with gpg2 instead of gpg
  2. I can add a password via pass insert
  3. gpg --list-secret-keys lists the key I am using, with ultimate trust
  4. The users dialog in QtPass shows my key. When I select it, nothing happens though.
  5. The .gpg-id in ~/.password-store corresponds with the key ID

I am stuck here, any hints on solving this issue?

When I select to use pass in the configuration of QtPass, everything works. This happens when QtPass executes native GPG;

pass.cpp: 39 "/usr/bin/gpg" ("--batch", "-eq", "--output", "", "-r", "ABCDEF123456", "-")

Quite obvious that GPG can not resolve the path . This issue is resolved for me for now, hoping some other people find this post useful 😃

Thanks for QtPass!
