Description Florian Reinhard 2014-04-04 16:50:31 UTC
kcmshell4 file_types lists *.cert, *.crt, *.der, *.pem as valid file types. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. wget http://www.cacert.org/certs/root.crt
2. wget http://www.cacert.org/certs/root.der
3. kcmshell4 kcm_ssl
4. Click the "Add" button on the lower right corner.
5. choose root.der
Actual Results:  
1. root.der will not be imported. it fails silently, there's just a kDebug output in CaCertificatesPage::addCertificateClicked
2. root.crt will not be displayed in the KFileDialog. if you empty the "Filter" you'll be able to select it and sucessfully import it.

Expected Results:  
1. import root.der or display a message what's wrong, never ever fail silently!
2. display .pem, .crt, .cert files in the file dialog
Comment 1 Dawit Alemayehu 2014-11-07 03:15:12 UTC
The only valid things from this bug report today are:

1. There is no message shown when importing fails.
2. *.der files are not imported at all.

The second one seems to be a bug in QSslCertificate::fromPath. I have a patch that changes that to use QSslCertificate::fromDevice instead and that seems to work fine. The first issue is something that should be fixed, but due to message freezes, cannot be fixed in the current 4.x branch. Perhaps it can be resolved in the KDE frameworks branch.

Pushed by adawit into branch 'KDE/4.14'.

Use QSslCertificate's fromDevice instead fromPath to import certificates.

QSslCertificate::fromPath seems to have problem importing certs in DER format.
