    Unable to sign message with Enigmail - No passphrase prompt

    I have Thunderbird 24.4.0 and Enigmail 1.5.2 installed.
    My OS is Kubuntu 13.10 x64.
    gnupg 1.4.14-1ubuntu2.1
    pinentry-qt4 0.8.1-1ubuntu2
    kgpg 4.4.11.5-0ubuntu0.1
    gpg-agent 2.0.20-1ubuntu3
    gpgsm 2.0.20-1ubuntu3


    I have only one profile in Thunderbird. One email account.
    I created a new key pair using kgpg.

    When trying to sign and send an email, I get an error: Send operation aborted. Error - bad passphrase.
    Tried kmail, and got the same error.

    I never get prompted to enter a passphrase. gpg.conf is configured to "use-agent" but commenting that out doesn't seem to change anything. I have no idea what I have to do to get a passphrase prompt.
    Doing gpg --list-secret shows the sec/uid/ssb of the key I am trying to use. No other keys.

    Since it appears I am using gpg 1.4, do I have to use pinentry? What are the pros/cons of using it/not using it? Should I upgrade to gpg 2.0?


    Any assistance is appreciated.


    Thanks

    Is the sender address for the email associated with the right gpg key?
