I jump into guile world by learning and copy/pasting Dominic Martinez config :)

Nice to know my config helped someone! Sorry it's a bit of a mess, I didn't really document anything.
I'm interested to better understand some Guile snippet of your config, if you're ok, is it possible to ask that in another mail or irc ?

Everything going pretty well but now i'm blocked with yubikey configuration.

And without yubikey that contain your only private key to sign/decrypt everything, that's a
little complicated ...

Running "gpg --card-status" my yubikey is correclty detected. That a good news ... BUT
that's all,
other command don't work, for example both :

gpg --list-secret-keys
gpg --list-keys

When you say it doesn't work, do you mean it doesn't list any keys? If you have keys on your Yubikey that you used with GPG on a different system, you'll have to re-export the key stubs for GPG to use the Yubikey for authentication (see

Thanks! This only manipulation seems not enough and i finally found that importing public key is required, from server or directly from the key ....

yourkey.asc | gpg --import

After that, everything goes well !

If you're getting other errors, you might need to enable some system services. For instance, you need the pcscd service (, and also the udev rules appropriate for your Yubikey model ( The below snippet should get all Yubikey functionality working:

#+begin_src scheme
(service pcscd-service-type)
(udev-rules-service 'yubikey-rules
                      ;; All keys
                      "ACTION!=\"add|change\",                       GOTO=\"u2f_end\"\n"
                      ;; Yubikey
                      "KERNEL==\"hidraw*\", "
                      "SUBSYSTEM==\"hidraw\", "
                      "ATTRS{idVendor}==\"1050\", "
"ATTRS{idProduct}==\"0113|0114|0115|0116|0120|0121|0200|0402|0403|0406|0407|0410\",                        "
                      "TAG+=\"uaccess\", MODE=\"0660\"\n"
                      ;; End all keys

I already copy paste this part from your config :)

Thanks again !

Sébastien RC.
