Description

several users reported that since the upgrade to tails 4, they are not able to import PGP public keys anymore from seahorse.

I found this bug ticket upstream :

https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/seahorse/issues/236

but nobody seems to work on it there.

importing the key from a terminal with gpg --import should work

Ouch!

I see that many users are affected.

I'd like us to decide on #16531 what OpenPGP use cases we want (and realistically can) support.

A user has reported that modifying key details has issues as well, I'm not sure if this is related to this issue. Let me know if I should open a new ticket.

Hi @numbat,

A user has reported that modifying key details has issues as well, I'm not sure if this is related to this issue. Let me know if I should open a new ticket.

This seems to be a different problem. At this point we don't know if they share a single root cause, so yeah, let's track them separately.

Hello @intrigeri, thanks. I opened a new ticket #17223

A user claims that they were able to import their private PGP key. It doesn't show up in the list but it is there and can be used.
