    Protonmail Bridge - GPG key not working

    First, let me apologize for my ignorance on this topic. I'm trying to install the Protonmail Bridge so that I can use Thunderbird for my Protonmail account instead of using the web application. I have never used the gpg key before. When I try to set up my account, the Bridge installer gives me an error message that no keychain is present.

    However, I have installed the gpg key and configured it as follows:
    Code:
    gpg --full-generate-key
    I am just testing this so I left the passphrase blank, and initialized the key as follows:

    Code:
    gpg: key A9612D99CCDED9FF marked as ultimately trusted
    gpg: revocation certificate stored as '/home/gshockxcc/.gnupg/openpgp-revocs.d/C191790C6E8A8ED24D4383CAA9612D99CCDED
    9FF.rev'
    public and secret key created and signed.
    
    pub   rsa3072 2021-11-25 [SC]
         C191790C6E8A8ED24D4383CAA9612D99CCDED9FF
    uid                      Kristan Sears (Test) <gshockxcc@protonmail.com>
    sub   rsa3072 2021-11-25 [E]
    
    gshockxcc@gshockDell:~$ pass init A9612D99CCDED9FF
    Password store initialized for A9612D99CCDED9FF
    I don't know if the Bridge installer is not recognizing the key, or if I've set it up incorrectly and it's not visible to the Bridge installer.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
