Bug description:
  HI there

  I just upgraded from Maverick KDE 4.5.3 and I have a problem signing
  outgoing emails in KMail. When trying to sign outgoing email I get
  this generic error "Signing failed: General error".

  I then tried to pinpoint down the issue and started Kleopatra. It
  reports the following error:

  "Check that gpg-agent is running and that the GPG_AGENT_INFO variable
  is set up-to-date"

  I then purged the gnupga-agent package (sudo apt-get purge gnupg-
  agent) and reinstalled it and kleopatra. The same problems appears.

  In the ~/.gnupg folder I found various gnugp-agnet files. The gpg-
  agent.conf did not mention the above variable but the gpg-agent-info-
  HOSTNAME file does. For me it contains currently:


  I don't know what that should be changed to.

  Also when I try to run gpg-agent from the cli I get this error:

  "gpg-agent[4794]: can't connect to `/home/hyper/.gnupg/S.gpg-agent':
  No such file or directory"

  Qt: 4.7.0
  KDE Development Platform: 4.5.80 (4.6 Beta1)
  KMail: 1.13.5
