GPCServices reported error as bad signature.'s Avatar

18 Oct, 2013 09:10 PM

When I used right-click popup to open an .asc file with GPCServices.service it reported a signature mismatch. When I switched over to the command line and ran gpg --verify I got an error message about an invalid auto-key-locate configuration. After commenting out the offending configuration line the command line --verify checked out, and GPCServices.service reported a successful signature check. It seems like the UI message should definitely differentiate between errors and bad sigs, doesn't it?

    Hi Shane,

    you're absolutely right. GPGServices is terrible at error reporting and we'll definitely fix this in the future.
    Thanks for the report, and glad you found the solution to the problem yourself.
