    Hi Joerg,

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

    Could you please download and install our latest GPG Suite nightly build and see if the problem persists. That page also has sig and SHA256 to verify the download.

    Should the problem persist, could you please send a debug log from your affected machine: Open System Preferences > GPGPreferences / GPG Suite > Send Report. Check the box to "attach debug log". Since you already described your issue in this discussion, you don't need to add a lot of detail, but please do add the link to your existing discussion, so I can then merge your debug info with this existing discussion.

    All the best,

    Disclaimer: This is a development version which has not been thoroughly tested yet - bugs or crashes are to be expected. Thanks for helping us test.

    Just FYI: We just released GPG Suite 2017.1. Please update to that release and let me know if any issues persist.

    All the best,

    Have you ever self compiled any of the components? Maybe via homebrew?

    Yes, you're right: I'm using homebrew. But why is this library/file missing? On another Macbook with the same OS Version and Homebrew it is working...

    What should I do?

    Hi Joerg,

    it should be easiest to fix removing the gpg link pointing to /usr/local/bin/gpg and creating a new one pointing to /usr/local/MacGPG2/bin/gpg

    rm /usr/local/bin/gpg ln -s /usr/local/MacGPG2/bin/gpg /usr/local/bin

    After that, run gpg --version and if you see no error you’re good to go

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you very much - it was an old Installation of PGP, but after 'rm /usr/local/bin/gpg2' it's now working!
