All these settings are correct. I am not using the defunct gpg2 - I have tried it with lots of Linux distros and found it to be useless. I have listed all the errors - and gpg2 knows where it's files are stored gpg2 -k gpg2 --version I always run these commands when installing a Linux distro. Gpg2 is incompatible with Linux distros - I've run tests looked at bug reports - and the weird thing is that gpg2 is unable to sign and encrypt at the same time - sounds like Windows :) and Always encrypts to your private key and not someone else's public key.
I do not recommend the use of pgp2 with Enigmail/Openpgp 1..4 with TB 12.1 it does not support pgp2. Fact. It crashes freezes and does weird and wonderful things but it does not provide any signing or encryption functions. It may work on Windows it may work on Macs but it does not work on any major Linux distros.
