Forcing GPG passphrase input in the terminal
One annoyance when entering GPG passphrases in terminal applications on many systems is that a seperate GUI window pops up. To enable passphrase entry in the comfort of your own terminal, set the following line in .gnupg/gpg-agent.conf
or in some older distributions (e.g. CentOS 7):
The running agent's settings can be reconfigured with:
gpg-connect-agent reloadagent /bye
