GPGMail: pubring.kbx wird ignoriert

Nachdem Debian zu gpg2 als Standard gewechselt ist und ich mit meiner Debian Installation GnuPG teile, befinden sich der Pubring nun in einer Datei names pubring.kbx. Leider scheint GPGTools diese Datei zu ignorieren, mit dem Resultat, dass eine neue und leere Datei pubring.gpg angelegt wird. Im Endeffekt kann ich deshalb natuerlich auch keine verschluesselten Mails mehr auf dem Mac lesen. ;-)

GPGTools sollte auch pubring.kbx lesen koennen bzw. GnuPG2 kompatibel sein.

Mac OS X        10.11.6             (15G31)
Libmacgpg       0.7         769 
GPGMail         2.6.1       1151
GPG Keychain    1.3.1       1233
GPGServices     1.11        907

    Auch mit der neuesten Version 2016-10 besteht das Problem weiterhin: pubring.kbx wird noch immer ignoriert und stattdessen eine leere pubring.gpg angelegt.

    Hey Jürgen,

    entschuldige die späte Antwort. kbx keyfiles werden mit gnupg 2.1 unterstützt. Das ist aber noch nicht in GPG Suite.

    We have a ticket for this problem. I connected this discussion with the existing ticket. That means, should this discussion get closed, it will be re-opened as soon as the ticket is closed. That way you'll stay in the loop and get notified as soon as we have news. Feel free to open a new discussions should you run into further problems or need assistance.

    All the best,

    Hi Ingo,

    we have a first GPG Suite test build which integrates gpg 2.1. Here is the signature file for that release.

    It would be great if you could test this build and let us know if run into any trouble. Please note, that downgrading to the current beta release will require additional steps in case new keys were created using this test build. Depending on the test results, gpg 2.1 may soon land in the beta branch.

    All the best,

    The download link on the previous post seems to be dead. Has this been merged into the beta branch?

    Hi Henry,

    gpg 2.1 is now included with the nightly builds: could you please download and install our latest GPG Suite nightly build to test 2.1. That page also has sig and SHA256 to verify the download.

    All the best,

    Disclaimer: This is a development version which has not been thoroughly tested yet - bugs or crashes are to be expected. Thanks for helping us test.

    Hi Steve!

    Nope, doesn’t seem to work with the nightly build…

    I’ve copied over my Debian .gnupg directory and pubring.kbx has some keys in it:

    -rw-r--r-- 1 ij staff 7095957 18 Jun 20:27 pubring.kbx

    But despite that, no keys are found:

    Build 1921n shows everything in my keyring correctly.

    Hallo Ingo,

    mit welchem nightly hast du den letzten Test gemacht?
    Bitte probier folgendes:
    1. .gnupg umbenennen. z.B. .gnupg-backup
    2. GPG Keychain öffnen und wieder schließen.
    3. pubring.kbx und private-keys-v1.d aus dem alten in den neuen gunpg Ordner kopieren.
    Werden jetzt die Schlüssel angezeigt?
    Falls nicht schick bitte noch ein DebugLog mittels System-Einstellungen > GPGPreferences / GPG Suite.

    Grüße, Mento
