Before answering, I should make a positive assertion that, as far as I know, apart from support for ZFS (which is obviously unrelated to this issue) I believe that everything on this machine is exactly as-installed by synaptic from the official jessie repositories. FWIW, I too saw in the bug report that gnupg2 was installed; something else must have installed that at some point. Nothing in my notes says that I ever installed it explicitly. (I did install gnupg explicitly, several major versions of debian ago.) Now, to your question: > > Do you have a path set explicitly in enigmail's configuration? > The Basic Settings screen of enigmail says: Gnupg was found in /usr/bin/gpg The Override box ix checked, but it points to the same file. I do see that there is also a /usr/bin/gpg2 file installed (presumably from gunpg2). > Also, do you have gnome-keyring installed? Apparently, the answer is Yes". As with gnupg2, I did not install it explicitly (and I don't use, and never have used, gnome on this or any other mabchine) so something else must have installed it. > is it configured to > masquerade as gpg-agent? if so, you might want to disable that. I'm not sure. Typing "gnome-keyring" produces: ---- [HN:radio] gnome-keyring usage: gnome-keyring command [options] commands: certificate-exception import version [HN:radio] ---- so it's not obvious how to see the configuration details. Anyway, given the above facts, I changed the enigmail configuration so that it pointed to /usr/bin/gnupg2 instead of /usr/bin/gnupg. Apparently, this change requires leaving and reinvoking thunderbird for it to take effect, but once I realised that, enigmail began to work correctly. So the problem is solved here, although perhaps enigmail in debian should be changed to use /usr/bin/gnupg2 if it's installed, especially if gnupg is not an adequate version. Thank you very much for your help. Doc -- Web: http://enginehousebooks.com/drevans
