This comment was split from the discussion: GPGServices: i cant decrpt a message

I am experiencing the same problem as the above poster. Tried upgrading to OSX Sienna and reinstalled GPG but the problem persist. ENcryption works fine but DEcryption causes the error message "The “OpenPGP: Decrypt Selection” service could not be used because the “GPGServices” application did not respond to a request for services.".

I have tried other applications like TextEdit but that hasnt helped - same problem. Restarting also didnt help.
