Re: ssh-agent startup

Thank you, this seems to works too with ssh-agent. But after user disconnection, there is still "gpg-agent" daemon running in background. I read on some forum I have to add some lines in ~/.bash_logout to end pgp-agent process running. Is there a global bash_logout like /etc/profile ?

Add 'eval "$(gpg-agent --daemon)" ' to your ~/.bashrc or .bash_profile

As far as I know it will work from either
