Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 212564
Update to 0.8.2.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:46 EST
Description of problem: Version 0.8.2. is available for Seahorse which fixes the
* Fix problems with seahorse-agent leaving temp directories in ~/.gnome2/
* Make keyid column sortable
* Don't display expire date for remote keys.
* Make background of tray icon transparent.
* Ignore key server URIs with unsupported schema
* Prompt for a signer when signing a key.
* Several crasher and smaller fixes.
The default mime association also needs to be updated. With gnupg 1.4.5-4 the
default file extension changed to ".pgp" from ".gpg". However, with seahorse
0.8.1 (full current update to FC6) there is no association for that mime type so
you have to manually modify the fedora-seahorse-pgp-encrypted.desktop or add a
new file to get the menu options via nautilus. Easy fix is to add:
To the existing mime type of application/pgp-encrypted so then you can easily
right click and decrypt.
Sorry, the default file extension change started in seahorse 0.7.7 not gnupg ->
so right click and then using the encrypt option puts ".pgp" into the file name
from nautilus. However, you either must rename to ".gpg" or do the suggested
change to easily right click and get an easy decrypt option via nautilus.

Spec file patch
Seth, here's a patch to update the seahorse spec file to 0.8.2. It also does
some cleanup of the scriptlets and some other issues.
Sorry for the delay on getting this done. It'll be in extras before the end of
it's in the buildsign tree now. I'll close this bug for the moment. Brian, thank
Regarding the mime-type mentioned in Comment #1: It would be nice to add
MimeType=application/pgp; to the desktop-file so that .pgp *and* .gpg are
supported. The current situation is not very user friendly.
