Description André Klapper 2015-03-09 01:40:24 UTC
F22, Evolution and Seahorse 3.15.90.

Under "PGP Keys > GnuPG keys", Seahorse shows two "Personal PGP key"s, with the name that I entered and the email address (if I defined it).
I created these two keys in this GNOME session by following

Going to "Edit > Preferences > Mail Accounts > Edit > Security > Pretty Good Privacy > OpenPGP Key ID", I have no idea how to get any dropdown proposals (that v arrow is always disabled).

Am I really supposed to start Seahorse, right-click on a PGP key, choose "Properties", mark the Key ID, copy it, and paste it?

If yes, why is there a dropdown element displayed on the right of "OpenPGP Key ID" if it's just a simple text field with no dropdown proposals?

(I was trying to update so for the time being I'll tell people to start Seahorse. Meh.)

Works for me with:

Added key is shown in the evolution's UI. I cannot test this in rawhide, with:

because seahorse crashes for me as soon as I confirm to create a PGP Key with a backtrace at bug #744195. So the problem can be:
a) seahorse is not setting right flags on the key (evolution accepts only
   CRYPTUI_FLAG_CAN_SIGN and CRYPTUI_FLAG_IS_VALID and is not expired/revoked/
b) libcryptui misses the key for some reason, or sets flags incorrectly.

I'm moving this to seahorse/libcryptui for further investigation.
