Remove Save in password manager” option in GPG pinentry

To remove the option of Save in password manager” when the pinentry shows up, add no-allow-external-cache to gpg-agent.conf.

$ echo "no-allow-external-cache" >> ~/.gnupg/gpg-agent.conf

If gpg-agent.conf does not exist, the above command will create the file.

Also, add the following to your .bashrc:

# gpg-agent
export GPG_TTY

When you have edited these two files, run:

$ gpg-connect-agent reloadagent /bye

See the man page of gpg-agent for more explanation.
