GPGServices says no private key exists, but command line GPG works fine.

Inserting private key into TextEdit via Services shows empty private key list (attached).

Command line decrypting using private key works fine though.

Why not in GUI too?

    Seems to fail only after trying certain functions in certain apps.

    Ex. importing a public key fails from selecting text in Firefox, and trying to encrypt in Firefox shows above (broken) dialog... BUT

    Copying same key to text file and importing text file in GPG Keychain works fine and encrypting then works again.

    Flakey :(

    Hey Casemon, first: could you try out if this issue is still there, when you use the latest GPGServices nightly from here:
    second: Could you send a screenshot of GPG Keychain Access with the Key Inspector open for one of the keys in question. That can also be a test private key.

    Cheers, steve

    Thanks for the feedback.
