I setup gpg with pass on a new computer and pass does not prompt me for the password of my gpg key, meaning I can't access my encrypted passwords on that computer.

What can I do?

when I run pass somepassword it just does not open a window to prompt me for a password.

I am using dwm with my own .xinitrc.

  • I have the password prompting working on my other computer though.

OK, it turns out, I just had to install gtk2, because I was missing that package.
