byobu-reconnect-sockets(1) Sourcable script that updates GPG_AGENT_INFO and DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS in the environment


byobu-reconnect-sockets is a sourcable bit of shell code that will update the GPG_AGENT_INFO and DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS environment variables in the current shell, such that you may restablish connection to gpg-agent(1) and dbus-daemon(1).

This is often useful when reattaching to a detached Byobu session.
