Description wocanltofnetrisz 2012-03-06 01:57:45 UTC
Bad charset / encoding result of signing clipboard with utf-8 text but non-english text.
I have a written text in eastern european language in Kate but coding is in utf-8. When copying to clipboard and wanna sign the message, text is not the same but instead some letters there are just question marks "?".
When signing a txt file, the same problem. 
Only if I crypt and then decrypt the txt file (with the same text as mentioned above), decryption is ok.
Am I wrong or can I set anything anywhere ?

Just a while ago (but already after posting this bug report), I've installed "GPA ver. 0.9.0-1", another gnuPG front-end and I've tested the same task - to sign clipboard with non-english text/letters.
And the signed text is OK ! :) 
Those non-english letters are the same as original, therefore I do suppose there must be  unfortunately something wrong with the "KGpg" app :-\

I have already fixed some of these bugs. Please try again with a recent version.

thanks for information.
Can you please give me little advice how to install the newest version of KGpg into Debian Squeeze (stable) ? :)
Due it's stable most apps won't change, some apps, like Iceweasel I've upgraded just adding backports to my sources.list and installing with a switch "-t ...", no other way.
Thanks in advance!

Sorry, I have no idea about Debian. Try asking in the KDE forums.
Comment 5 Rolf Eike Beer 2012-03-07 09:14:55 UTC
Ok, I found some more bugs in it. Fixes will go into master soon and
things will likely get fixed for KDE SC 4.8.2.

Git commit fa5e306040bb977f38da6732d6a10330ed10d6b4 by Rolf Eike Beer.

make operations on UTF-8 text in editor work

Signing, verifying, and encrypting were previously broken. This will very
likely break any text that is not UTF-8 encoded, but I doubt that the editor
can currently handle that anyway.
