I want to generate a GPG key interactively in expert mode.

gpg --expert --gen-key 

I only have the name, email and a prompt for a passphrase, no key size, key type, etc., why would it be so?


I guess this is version dependent. Try --full-gen-key instead of --gen-key. You can also try gpg2 instead of gpg.
