GPGTools installed and services activated in settings, but selecting "Services" --> "OpenPGP: Encrypt" is not working

GPG Services

Mac OS X: 10.9.5 (13F34)
MacGPG2: 2.0.26b2, 750b
GPG Keychain: 1.2b3, 980b
GPGServices: 1.10b2, 730b
GPGPreferences: 1.5b2, 730b
GPGMail: 2.5b4, 802b

Typing text in TextEdit, selecting it, then right-clicking and selecting "Sevices" --> "OpenPGP: Encrypt" results in nothing.

What did you expect instead

I was expecting to see the encrypted message

Describe steps leading to the problem.

  1. Open TextEdit
  2. Type text
  3. Select text
  4. Right click
  5. Mouse-over "Services"
  6. Select "OpenPGP: Encrypt"

    HI David,

    this works here in my own test. If you open GPG Keychain how many entries with type "sec/pub" do you see?

    Can you please try to encrypt an example file and see if that works:

    If that does nothing as well, please fire up, again try to encrypt a file and see if spits out any related errors. Copy paste those to this discussion if you find anything.

    All the best,

    Hi Steve,

    I've one sec/pub entry (my own PGP keys).

    I just attempted to encrypt a test message to no avail. I've attached the output in to this message.

    Hi David,

    this might be a stupid question, but have you tried to log on/log off or restart your computer?
    That might help.

    I've had success after restarting the computer, but only after restarting.
    After the first encryption, the problem comes back.

    David, do you have a way of reproducing this which reliably works?

    Hi David,

    we've implemented some more debugging info. Please download and install our latest nightly build. That page also has sig and SHA1 to verify the download.

    After that, please let the debug script run on your machine and post the output .log file as attachment to this discussion. This KB-article explains how to do that. Once the script is finished, a new mail with the info as attachment will be created. Please take that attachment and add it to this discussion here.

    I'm switching this discussion to “Privat”. That means it can only be accessed by the core Team and the company hosting this platform

    All the best, steve

    This issue is happening when the PushBullet Chromium Extension is installed.

    Uninstalled and GPGServices will work as expected.

    We did get in touch with the developers of PushBullet but sadly never heard back. Maybe they will resolve this problem in a future update. It seems GPGServices is not the only software affected by this problem.
