GPG Keychain Access

We are trying to use GPG tools to encrypt emails but after installing I get an error where the keychain access will not launch. I read on line to change the config file to lock-never and then the gpg keychain access file is able to launch but has trouble generating keys. Comes back with a fatal error. We are using this with user account coming from our ldap server. When I try it on my local laptop with a local home folder it works great as expected, but when we use it with a network home folder it does not work properly, or at all. Any thoughts or suggestions.

    Hi Benjamin,

    unfortunately networked homes are only supported (and not always) if the home is located on a hfs+ formatted drive.
    The locking mechanism in gnupg prevents other partition formats from working.
    We'll be looking into this problem but a fix is is not to be expected soon.

    Sorry for that.
