Description Jurgen Kramer 2006-07-18 13:06:58 EDT
Description of problem:
When trying to sign or decrypt a encrypted email evolution does not prompt for a
pin needed to access the required certificate on my openpgp smartcard (via gpg).
When trying to sign or decrypt evolution hangs

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type new mail
2. Select Security->PGP Sign
3. ....
Actual results:
Evolution stalls when trying to sign or decrypt an email.

Expected results:
Evolution asks for gpg smartcard pin when trying to decrypt a encrypted mail or
sign a mail.

Additional info:
This is with gnupg-1.4.4-2.2. Encrypting/decrypting using the openpgp smartcard
fully functions on the command line.

Apologies for taking so long to respond.

Is this problem still present in Fedora Core 6 or later?
Comment 2 Jurgen Kramer 2007-01-02 13:48:52 EST
No worries, I have not tried it for a while. I just tested it and I can confirm
that signing and encrypting now works properly, evolution does ask for the pin.
(tested on FC6 fully updated). However, when the smartcard is not inserted
evolution hangs and does not ask to insert the proper card. Inserting the proper
card does not bring evolution back to life.

Comment 3 Matthew Barnes 2007-01-02 14:02:51 EST
Thanks for responding.  Can I ask you to file a separate bug report for the hang
when the smartcard is not inserted?  That way we can avoid compounding issues in
a single bug report.  Thanks in advance.

Closing as CURRENTRELEASE since the original problem is reportedly fixed.
