i had split-gpg with subkeys set up a while a go but now it stopped working. (Thunderbird wont start for whatever reason). After troubleshooting it a few minutes i figured, that it will be quicker to just set up a new work qube.
I followed this instruction for the work-gpg and work qubes and it worked the first time.
But now i get a “Request refused” when trying to
qubes-gpg-client -K on both work and newwork qubes with my work-gpg and newwork-gpg qubes. It does not ask what qube to connect to, like it should.
I also changed the
/etc/qubes-rpc/policy/qubes.Gpg but this should not be the problem as it is only an ease of use configuration.
gpg -K works well on both my old work-gpg and my newwork-gpg.
man qubes-gpg-client wasn’t really helpful for me.
Any ideas where i could gone wrong/how to troubleshoot this?
In case this is important: the work and work-gpg that failed where restored from a backup of another qube installation but on the same hardware and ran after restoring them.
qubes-gpg-split-dom0 is installed.
Also i think that the problem with Thunderbird can be reduced to a problem of split-gpg as the pre Thunderbird prompt “You sure you want to let this qube access your gpg qube?” also did not show up.
Thanks for your help!
