These options are used to change the configuration and are usually found in the option file.
--options 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.
--homedir dir ¶
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
(on Windows systems) by means of the Registry entry
On Windows systems it is possible to install GnuPG as a portable application. In this case only this command line option is considered, all other ways to set a home directory are ignored.
Outputs additional information while running.
You can increase the verbosity by giving several
verbose commands to
gpgsm, such as ‘-vv’.
--keyserver string ¶
This is a deprecated option. It was used to add an LDAP server to use for X.509 certificate and CRL lookup. The alias --ldapserver existed from version 2.2.28 to 2.2.33 and 2.3.2 to 2.3.4 but is now entirely ignored.
LDAP servers must be given in the configuration for
--policy-file filename ¶
Change the default name of the policy file to filename. The default name is policies.txt.
--agent-program file ¶
Specify an agent program to be used for secret key operations. The
default value is determined by running the command
Note that the pipe symbol (
|) is used for a regression test
suite hack and may thus not be used in the file name.
--dirmngr-program file ¶
Specify a dirmngr program to be used for CRL checks. The default value is /usr/local/bin/dirmngr.
This option is obsolete and ignored.
Entirely disable the use of the Dirmngr.
Do not start the gpg-agent or the dirmngr if it has not yet been
started and its service is required. This option is mostly useful on
machines where the connection to gpg-agent has been redirected to
another machines. If dirmngr is required on the remote machine, it
may be started manually using
gpgconf --launch dirmngr.
Do not print a warning when the so called "secure memory" cannot be used.
--log-file file ¶
When running in server mode, append all logging output to file. Use socket:// to log to socket.
Prefix all log output with a timestamp even if no log file is used.
