Change path on macOS HighSierra

I would like to know if it's possible to change path GPG keychain on macOS (/usr/local/MacGPG2). I would like to move all keychain on TrueCrypt volume. Keychain will be available only when TrueCrypt encripted partition will be mounted. I tried to create symlink (move MacGPG2 folder on TC partition and I created symlink in /usr/local/MacGPG2| . It didn't work properly.

Is there any option how to resolve this issue?

Many thanks.

    Hi Filip,

    the keychain is located at ~/.gnupg. In theory you can move that folder into your truecrypt container and then create a symlink from the folder in the truecrypt container back to ~/.gnupg

    /usr/local/MacGPG2 only contains the gpg binary and associated files, but no user data or keyring data.
