GPG Suite 2015.09

Mac OS X 10.11.3 (15D21)
Libmacgpg 0.6.1 752
GPGMail 2.6b2 1105b
GPG Keychain 1.2.1 1147
GPGServices 1.10.1 871
MacGPG2 2.0.28 855
GPGPreferences 1.5 846

I'm not finding a gpg-agent binary after installing this Bundle. I thought it was included with prior similar Bundles. Am I mistaken, not looking in the right place, or is something amiss?

% gpg-agent zsh: command not found: gpg-agent
% echo $PATH /Users/vwelch/bin:/usr/local/bin:/bin/:/usr/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/etc:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/texlive/2013basic/bin/universal-darwin:.

What did you expect instead

To find a 'gpg-agent' binary.

  1. Download and install Suite from
  2. Try to find gpg-agent binary and fail to do so.

    Hey von,

    gpg-agent is located at '/usr/local/MacGPG2/bin'. Please ensure, /usr/local/MacGPG2/bin is included in the PATH variable.

    All the best,

    Confirmed, that had dropped out of my PATH for some reason. Thanks for the quick reply.
