This is still a problem
KMail doesn't ask for a passphrase when opening an encrypted mail and
just states "bad passphrase"
I fixed it with installing pinentry-qt, gnupg-agent and removing the #
in front of use-agent in the gpg.conf
I don't think that's an elegant solution for something as important as
email encryption, especially as the dependencys didn't really help.
I read somewhere an idea about a package for this, maybe something like
:requires -> pinentry-qt
:requires -> gnupg-agent
and modifying the gpg.conf ...
And a better message then "Bad passphrase" would help people locating
the problem, took me some time to find a solution to this
kmail don't ask the phrase for decipher
