I have installed the termux and app and used it to install emacs on my android phone, i.e.
I then installed gpg via termux, i.e.
$ apt-get install gnupg2
However when I try to open a symmetrically encrypted .gpg file (private key) in emacs (running under termux) I get the following error:
Error while decrypting with "/usr/bin/gpg": gpg: CAST5 encrypted data gpg: problem with the agent: Not a typewriter gpg: encrypted with 1 passphrase gpg: decryption failed: No secret key
Its as though it doesn't know that I have to provide the decrypt key via the emacs minibuffer in order to open the file
I've tried various permutations of the following elisp in my .emacs file:
(require 'epa) (epa-file-enable) (setq epg-gpg-program "/usr/bin/gpg")) ;; Don't display graphic prompt in terminal (when (not (display-graphic-p)) (setq epg-gpg-program "/usr/bin/gpg"))
but all to no avail thus far
anyone with any pointers/experience in this area gratefully received..
