Kgpg Crashing in Slackware 11


Hey,

I just did a fresh install of Slackware 11 a few days ago. I have my home directory on another partition so my personal data is the same from when I was running slackware 10.2.

I started up KGPG and created a new public/private key pair.
I can do everything in KGPG as before expect I can't decrypt the contents of the clipboard. For example, I encrypt some text in the editor provided with KGPG, I then try to decrypt it. After I type in my passphrase KGPG crahses and KDE 3.5 gives me the error output. I don't have that output with me at the moment but I can post it later.

Has anyone else had this problem with KGPG in Slackware 11?

Note, GPG decrypts the encrypted text fine on the command line.

Thanks,
Nick

Yes I see the same crash when I encrypt a piece of text in the editor with my own public key and then try to decrypt it. After I type my GPG passphrase, Kgpg crashes.

This is a known kgpg bug. It's fixed in KDE 3.5.5. Don't have the link handy at present, but I looked it up a few days back. Don't know what would be involved in a Slackware 11.0 patch.

Cool, thanks for the reply. I plan to install slapt-get soon so when I do that I can upgrade kde to 3.5.5 from the "current" folder on the slackware FTP sites.

Thanks again for the help.

Definitely fixed in 3.5.5 it used to annoy the hell out of me one thing you do can as a work around is use kgpg -s encryped_file from the command line to get the file in the editor then it decrypts/encrypts fine.

Thanks for the tip. Slackware-current isn't updated with KDE 3.5.5 yet so this will help nicely.

Thanks again,
Nick
