kmail and gpg-agent

as we have now gpg-agent in the repos, i just wondered why kmail do not work with it

i did everything from http://kmail.kde.org/kmail-pgpmime-howto.html

but still kmail is opening the dialogue to type the passphrase and kgpg is complaining now this:

gpg-agent.jpg

i'm starting gpg-agent from ~/.xinitrc with this line:

gpg-agent --daemon

and

[damir@Asteraceae ~]$ ps -e | grep gpg-agent
 6628 ?        00:00:00 gpg-agent

thanx in advance for any help

Re: kmail and gpg-agent

strange you also did that pinentry stuff?
i didn't test the funcionality of gpg
can someone do some reasearch on that
kde 3.3.2 is round the corner would be great if it works till then

i have

pinentry-program /usr/bin/pinentry-qt

in ~/.gnupg/gpg-agent.conf, if you mean that ... maybe there is some other things to do?

yea, that would be nice ...

well, without the gpg-agent (the classical way), gpg works fine, but it is not really cool having to type a long passphrase each time you send a signed email (especially, if you write lots of emails to lots of different peoples /day)

here the dialogue i get always when i want to send an email (in kde 3.3.x the gpg-agent lines are new, but the dialogue itself is old (since 3.1.4 working fine the classical way))

Re: kmail and gpg-agent

I'm also hoping someone will fix this : Tried for a while, tried compiling packages myself too, but same problem.

Re: kmail and gpg-agent

i tried to look at things ... it seems, as if gpg-agent is exporting some variables, but as i start it in startx, these variables are not seen by kgpg --- kgpg/kmail is not checking, if a gpg-agent process runs, but if a variable is exported (if i understood the code right), and now we must only find a way to start gpg-agent the right way, so that kgpg/kmail recognizes it running --- aaaa, it drives me krazy

Re: kmail and gpg-agent

Time for a bump.

It seems to be working in the kde(-pim) pre-release packages from tpowa now, hooray smile  Thanks, tpowa.

I know how sucky it is to FINALLY get GPG up & running, and no-one to test with, so feel free to e-mail me.
