Add this line to
$ gpgconf --reload gpg-agent
That’s all 🙌
Loopback mode allows Fluidkeys to send a password directly to GnuPG, rather than GnuPG itself prompting for the password.
This lets Fluidkeys store the password in the system keyring, then run automatic maintenance from cron (see
fk key maintain automatic)
Unfortunately GnuPG 2.1.11 throws an error if you try to use loopback mode:
gpg: setting pinentry mode 'loopback' failed: Not supported
This was fixed in GnuPG 2.1.12, but if you’re using Ubuntu 16.04 you’re stuck with the affected version.
