Thank you Stephan - got it working. For the record, I did not undo anything that I had previously done. Just left the installation as it was then did : gpg2 --import /path-to-my-key/mykey.asc inserted smartcard gpg2 --card-status then run tests. Can now sign and encrypt emails, sign and encrypt and decrypt files although verify on its own causes me a problem but I shouldn't think that is connected with the smartcard. Thanks. Philip
