Package: parcimonie Version: 0.10.2-4 Followup-For: Bug #836266 I want to add my 2c to this bug report, sharing the same user frustrations as anarcat above. I don't know if any more recent tooling versions (be that parcimonie, dirmngr, gnupg, torsocks) have improved the situation, as it's not in stretch-backports.
In the absence of a longer term solution, parcimonie should respect user edits to dirmngr.conf i.e. I don't have a massive objection to it adding use-tor initially, but if I've removed it (perhaps temporarily to receive a single key without tor errors), then don't get into an editing war with me. I'm even happy if this disables parcimonie until I put it back (with a log window message). When I see the parcimonie log error: Failed to fetch key 6ACBAD6A729326258CF725C6E7519C8D747F00DC: gpg: keyserver receive failed: No data at /usr/share/perl5/App/Parcimonie/Daemon.pm line 350. I now run this to fix the tor connections: systemctl --user restart dirmngr.socket I realise this is a dirmngr issue, but it's also a parcimonie issue as a "privacy-friendly helper to refresh a GnuPG keyring" which is likely to be run by people like me trying to get into best practices. You said above you're unsure "what to do with this bug report", at the very least I'd like it documented in the man-page (if my workaround above is correct in the general case). Ideally in the short to medium term, parcimonie could detect a series of sequential (likely) tor-related errors and explicitly write this in the logs, perhaps with the socket restart recommendation, perhaps lengthening the sleep to e.g. 2hrs so it can be fixed in user scale time. -- System Information: Debian Release: 9.4 APT prefers stable-updates APT policy: (500, 'stable-updates'), (500, 'stable') Architecture: amd64 (x86_64) Foreign Architectures: i386 Kernel: Linux 4.9.0-6-amd64 (SMP w/4 CPU cores) Locale: LANG=en_GB.UTF-8, LC_CTYPE=en_GB.UTF-8 (charmap=UTF-8), LANGUAGE=en_GB:en (charmap=UTF-8) Shell: /bin/sh linked to /bin/dash Init: systemd (via /run/systemd/system) Versions of packages parcimonie depends on: ii dirmngr 2.1.18-8~deb9u1 ii gnupg 2.1.18-8~deb9u1 ii gnupg2 2.1.18-8~deb9u1 ii libclone-perl 0.38-2+b1 ii libconfig-general-perl 2.63-1 ii libfile-homedir-perl 1.00-1 ii libfile-which-perl 1.21-1 ii libgnupg-interface-perl 0.52-9 ii libipc-system-simple-perl 1.25-3 ii liblist-moreutils-perl 0.416-1+b1 ii libmoo-perl 2.002005-1 ii libmoox-late-perl 0.015-2 ii libmoox-options-perl 4.023-1 ii libnamespace-clean-perl 0.27-1 ii libpath-tiny-perl 0.100-1 ii libtime-duration-parse-perl 0.13-1 ii libtry-tiny-perl 0.28-1 ii libtype-tiny-perl 1.000005-1 ii libtypes-path-tiny-perl 0.005-1 ii perl 5.24.1-3+deb9u2 ii torsocks 2.2.0-1+deb9u1 Versions of packages parcimonie recommends: pn gnupg-curl <none> ii libglib-perl 3:1.324-1 ii libgtk3-perl 0.030-1 ii liblocale-gettext-perl 1.07-3+b1 ii libnet-dbus-glib-perl 0.33.0-2+b1 ii libnet-dbus-perl 1.1.0-4+b1 ii libpango-perl 1.227-1+b1 ii libtime-duration-perl 1.20-1 ii tor 0.2.9.14-1 parcimonie suggests no packages. -- no debconf information
