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.
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.

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