gpg2 seahorse-agent connection refused

view full story

http://forums.opensuse.org – I just upgraded from 11.1 -> 11.2 with a clean install only retaining the /home partition. I see now that seahorse is being used for gpg and ssh agent communication. However for me this is not working. Any attempt to use the agent fails with a connection refused error. Even the gpg-connect-agent command doesn't work. $ whoami techniq $ echo $GPG_AGENT_INFO /tmp/seahorse-fkNJA7/S.gpg-agent:23767:1 $ ls -l /tmp/seahorse-fkNJA7/S.gpg-agent srw------- 1 techniq users 0 2010-02-19 07:14 /tmp/seahorse-fkNJA7/S.gpg-agent $ gpg-connect-agent can't connect to `/tmp/seahorse-fkNJA7/S.gpg-agent': Connection refused gpg-connect-agent: can't connect to the agent: IPC connect call failed Anyone have any ideas? I made sure gpg-agent was not running and I don't have any agent file locations hardcoded in gpg.conf (as I've read in other posts). (Distributions)
