Kleopatra: Bad handling of non standard detached ASCII-armored signature
Open, NormalPublic

Description

When I try to open https://bitbucket.org/ligos/readablepassphrasegenerator/downloads/ReadablePassphrase%201.1.1.plgx%20signatures.txt with Kleopatra (or GpgEX), I get the error:

An error occurred: Kleopatra: Could not open file "H:/Downloads/ReadablePassphrase%201.1.0.plgx%20signatures" for reading: Input/output error (218136625)

But it looks like it wiped the extension off and tried to open it without the .txt.

It also looks like Kleopatra can't generate armored or Base64 signatures... when did you stop supporting this format?

Thanks for the report. This is indeed a bug.

The behavior is expected in that it can't automatically find the signed file, as it does not follow the usual naming convention of <signed_filename>.sig
But Kleopatra should then query you to which file the signature belongs to and not fail with that Input/Output error.

I'll change the task name accordingly so that its easier to find.

Under settings -> Crypto Operations there is "Create signed or encrypted files as text files"

We have an issue (can't find it quickly) already to change that to an "Ask" where we make the option add a checkbox again in the dialog.

When looking at Usability for Gpg4win 3.0 users were confused and did not know what this option meant so we mad it an option.
