I made it to start pinentry in a xterm:
Loading the "qt_" catalog failed for locale QLocale(English, Latin, United States)
Loading the "qt_" catalog failed for locale QLocale(German, Latin, Germany)
Loading the "qtbase_" catalog failed for locale QLocale(German, Latin, Germany)
OK Pleased to meet you
Checking for Caps Lock not possible on unsupported platform: "xcb"
The X11 connection broke (error 1). Did the X11 server die?
So direct afer "GETPIN" the dialog is shown nd X crashes.
