How can I move the gpg home directory? I already added GNUPGHOME env at ~/.bash_profile but it still using the default home directory which ~/.gnupg. Thank you.

When I tried to check using gpg --help, the Home directory is correct.

GPGPreferences Version: 2.0 build 887
gpg (GnuPG/MacGPG2) 2.0.30

    Hi John,

    we apologize for the late response.

    At the moment it's not possible to change the home directory so that our tools will pickup on it. As a workaround you can however create a symlink. That way it's possible to move your entire keychain onto a thumb drive for example.

    Hope that helps
