When I enter 'gpg -c test.txt' as user nothing happens. The same command as root gives gtk window asking for password. Obviously neither of these behavior is what I want, all I need is just asking in terminal for password and it worked like that just a few months ago. Something changed in the meantime probably during system update. How can I revert it?

jimmij ... works for me:

Code:
# gpg -c test.txt
# file test.txt.gpg
test.txt.gpg: GPG symmetrically encrypted data (CAST5 cipher)

I imagine its app-crypt/pinentry that you are having issues with ...

Code:
# eselect pinentry list
Available pinentry binary implementations:
  [1]   pinentry-curses *

HTH & best ... khay

I can select 3 different pinentries: gtk-2, qt4 and curses, neither of them looks as at good old days (closest is curses, but still it is stupid), also neither of them works for standard user.
I discovered that for user there is error message:
Code:
~/tmp> gpg -c test.txt
gpg: problem with the agent: Invalid card
gpg: error creating passphrase: Operation cancelled
gpg: symmetric encryption of `test.txt' failed: Operation cancelled

but it appears only once after reboot.
Later on 'gpg -c test.txt' commands give no message at all.

I suspected that maybe there is some gpg-agent running, but there is no process with 'gpg' phrase.


Edit:
I had gnome-keyring-daemon in startup programs (put there automatically during gnome upgrade process?), killing this daemon makes gpg work again with a warning:
Code:
gpg: can't connect to the agent - trying fall back


gnome-3 is such a crap, conflicts everywhere, unbelievable.
