Help moving pass to new computer

My old Gentoo box died. I'm trying to install pass on my new Gentoo box. I managed to copy my old home dir to a usb. I can see password-store directory and my gnupg directory. gpg --list keys shows the key I used to originally encrypt my password. I have also installed the gnupg package.
I ran pass init passwords at xxxxx.xxx. The new .gpg-id
contains one line with "passwords at xxxxx.xxx". The original.gpg-id file on the usb contains the correct hex id of the key. I copied the contents orginal .password-store dir into the new one. When I try to decrypt a password I get a "gpg:decryption failed: No secret key" error. I get this error regardless of which of the 2 entries are present in the .gpg-id file. Every time I've tried to decrypt there has been only .gpg-id entry.
I have tried copying the orginal .gpg-id file to the new .password-store dir.
I have tried pass init passwords at xxxxx.xxx.
I have tried pass init hex (in lower case)
I have tried pass init (in upper case)
All the above result in a No secret key error.
I feel like I'm overlooking something obvious or making a rather simple mistake.
I hope I'm not totally fucked.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
