4.2.1 How to change the configuration
These options are used to change the configuration and are usually found
in the option file.
- Reads configuration from file instead of from the default
per-user configuration file. The default configuration file is named
gpgsm.conf and expected in the .gnupg directory directly
below the home directory of the user.
- Set the name of the home directory to dir. If this option is not
used, the home directory defaults to ~/.gnupg. It is only
recognized when given on the command line. It also overrides any home
directory stated through the environment variable GNUPGHOME or
(on W32 systems) by means of the Registry entry
- Outputs additional information while running.
You can increase the verbosity by giving several
verbose commands to gpgsm, such as ‘-vv’.
- Change the default name of the policy file to filename.
- Specify an agent program to be used for secret key operations. The
default value is the /usr/local/bin/gpg-agent. This is only used
as a fallback when the environment variable
GPG_AGENT_INFO is not
set or a running agent cannot be connected.
- Specify a dirmngr program to be used for CRL checks. The
default value is /usr/sbin/dirmngr. This is only used as a
fallback when the environment variable
DIRMNGR_INFO is not set or
a running dirmngr cannot be connected.
- If a system wide dirmngr is running in daemon mode, first try
to connect to this one. Fallback to a pipe based server if this does
not work. Under Windows this option is ignored because the system dirmngr is
- Entirely disable the use of the Dirmngr.
- Do not print a warning when the so called "secure memory" cannot be used.
- When running in server mode, append all logging output to file.
