I am using onlykey for the first time with GPG. In particular I’m using it with duplicity. Since duplicity is a GPG app I set the “Derived Key user Input Mode” to button press required because duplicity didn’t have the ability to show me a challenge code. But what I noticed is that when I hit return on the pass phrase and onlykey turns purple I have to hit the same button 3 times for things to work. I was expecting based on the docs that once I switched to “Button Press Required” mode I would only have to hit one key.
Also which button I press seems to matter. I just did tests where:
- Three 1s worked
- Hit 2 twice and then the duplicity returned an error while onlykey still showed purple
- Hit 2 3 times and it worked (go figure)
- Hit 3 4s and that worked
- Hit 1 and then 2 and 3, that errored out
And so on. Basically it seems that I have to hit the same key (doesn’t seem to necessarily matter which one) 3 times.
But shouldn’t it be once?
