I'm having this too - without restarting, I can kill the service - how do I get it started right again? If I launch GPG Keychain it still doesnt work. Thanks

    Hi Pete,

    welcome to the GPGTools support platform. Sorry you are having problems using GPG Suite.

    You can try to launch Activity Monitor via Spotlight. Then search for "GPGServices" and force quit that process.

    If that does not help try restarting your mac.


    P.S.: We would kindly ask you to create a new discussion, whenever you need assistance with GPG Suite, even if your problem looks similar to the one you are replying to. While the symptoms are often very much alike, the root cause often differs. Having separate discussions allows to focus better on your particular issue.

    To proceed we have split your comment into a separate discussion.

    Hi Pete,

    this issue should be fixed. It would be great if you could download our latest nightly GPG Suite. That page also has sig and SHA1 to verify the download.

    Then check if you are still running into this problem.

    Should the problem persist, please do let us know and re-open this discussion.

    Should you see further issues using GPG Suite don't hesitate to get in touch and open a new discussion any time.

    Best, steve
