I'm glad you posted that link as it proved that I hadn’t got
pinentry-qt so I installed it and rebooted. Now I cant send and sign
even though I've put the conf files in place and rebooted. It says I
have a bad passphrase, yet I only have one key which expires in June
2014. There are times when I hate computers!

So now I have pinentry + the conf files as per the article, and I still
cant send! I'm not even getting the password enter box!

Please, how do I get out of this mess?
