[Solved] Can't Git Sign Commits

Whenever I try to git sign a commit, I get this error.

git commit -m "message"
error: gpg failed to sign the data
fatal: failed to write commit object

I have tried the following methods to solve this.

1. As I use Zsh and Oh-My-Zsh, I enable gpg-agent plugin.
2. Tried to add this on my shell config export GPG_TTY=$(tty).
3. Edited the ~/.gnupg/gpg-agent.conf to set pinentry-program as pinentry-program /usr/bin/pinentry-curses

I have turned the internet upside down, but I can't seem to solve the problem. Kindly help!

Get rid of oh-my-zsh completely and try again.


No, it didn't "fix" anything. It just shifted the brokeness one space to the right. - jasonwryan

Completely removed oh-my-zsh and config file. Still same result.

I have solved it myself. Completely Removed folder:

~/.gnupg

After that generated a new GPG key and that somehow solved the problem.
