no, they work together.

I believe you might be experiencing the same problem I had. Try using 
pinentry-gtk instead of pinentry-qt. 

I believe the reason was that the pinentry-qt package on ma2geo uses an 
esoteric security feature of Qt that keeps objects holding sensitive data 
from being accidentally swapped out, but a new version of Qt broke some part 
of that. You might want to look through the gpa-dev mailing list archive at 
gnupg.org, there was some discussion of this.
