Description Axel Braun 2020-04-06 21:11:25 UTC
gpg2 is installed by default, but not kgpg on a KDE Desktop. I feel this should be in the default pattern
Comment 1 Wolfgang Bauer 2020-04-07 06:27:24 UTC
It was removed from the patterns intentionally in https://build.opensuse.org/request/show/621724 .

- Split out PIM into a separate pattern:
  * Use kleopatra instead of kgpg
Comment 2 Fabian Vogt 2020-04-07 06:43:57 UTC
The reason gpg2 is installed by default is that zypper needs it for signature verification. So I'd argue that it's not a reason that kgpg should be installed by default. There might be a different reason though, but IMO those who would like a UI for GPG stuff can easily install it.

I would have probably not noted if KMail would not have failed in encrypting a mail - although Kleopatra was installed. it worked after kgpg was installed.

I don't have kgpg here, but can send and receive encrypted and signed mails just fine.

The button for cert management in KMail even opens kleopatra: https://github.com/KDE/kmail/blob/a6c8a4970dec6f38a6dcc36b9b59c70528906528/src/kmlaunchexternalcomponent.cpp#L78 So kmail actually has a soft dep on kleopatra, but not kgpg.
