I'm using FreeBSD 6.2 I've been tinkering with using gpg-agent for GnuPG passphrase caching when using Kmail. I have been able to get it working as per the instructions at http://freebsd.kde.org/howtos/gnupg-kmail.php for starting the daemon when entering KDE. But, I want to start gpg-agent when the sytem starts and I login to console mode (not just when I enter KDE), and I want Kmail to use the agent for GnuPG usage. Could someone please describe to me the details of the steps that I need to take and the file modifications that I need to make for this to work.
Again, I want the gpg-agent to be up and running when I login to the console, also when I log into KDE, I want Kmail to use the agent. The way I log into KDE is to first login to the console via a limited user account, then do sudo kdm and log into KDE using the same limited user account. I have root login disabled for both console and KDE. I've read the instructions for using a ~/.xinitrc or ~/.xsession to start the gpg-agent daemon when logging into kde, but I have neither file in my home directory, and anyway want the daemon running upon entering console mode login, i.e., running always and only one gpg-agent process running at any given time. Please CC my email address with any responses. Thanks very much for suggestions. FreeBSD rocks!
