[Solved] duplicate gnupg layout in both pacman.d and pacman.d/gnupg

This Arch installation dated back 2018-09-23, and is updated as now (2020-09-09 UTC+8)

There are those files and folders that represents general gnupg installation, such as pubring.gpg, secrings, gpg.conf, trustdb.gpg and socket files etc. in both /etc/pacman.d/ and /etc/pacman.d/gnupg

I noticed that the last modified date of those under /etc/pacman.d is in 2018, while those in -/gnupg looks more updated to 2020-09, can I safely remove those in /etc/pacman.d?

I would think so.  If you want to be safe, move them to a temp directory in your $HOME, and if you have no issues after a couple of updates, then you can delete them.

Re: [Solved] duplicate gnupg layout in both pacman.d and pacman.d/gnupg

It sounds like once you used the --gpgdir command-line option or GPGDir pacman.conf setting to make /etc/pacman.d your gpgdir. This is messy and also apparently no longer the case. Now you have two sets of files, one of which is messily mixed into /etc/pacman.d and is not actually used.

You can freely remove the unused files. smile

(You may verify which ones you actually need, by running `pacman-conf GPGDir` to see the current required location.)
