I have seen threads suggesting setting GPG_TTY and emerging pinentry with -qt3 -gtk.

They don't do any good. Gpg still farks the terminal, even the console with no X anywhere in sight. It stops echoing any characters, but when I have finished typing in my passphrase and hit ENTER, nothing happens. ldd shows gpg still depending on ncurses.

How can I emerge a plain old terminal based gnupg without all this GUI nonsense?

I get just the gnupg line.

These are the packages that would be merged, in reverse order:

I'm sorry, I misread the question. I thought it was one of those "why does it keep emerging GUI dependencies when my USE flags are telling it not to" questions.

I did have that problem at first, since it never dawned on me that (1) anyone would add any kind of GUI code to gnupg, and (2) if they did do so, they would not have the brains to revert to dumb tube mode when there was no GUI display.

You can force it to use the curses pinentry interface by setting:
Code:

pinentry-program /usr/bin/pinentry-curses

in ~/.gnupg/gpg-agent.conf (create the file if it doesn't exist).

Moved from Networking & Security to Duplicate Threads, refer to topic "how to disable (sanitize) gpg2 GUI features (pinentry)?".
