Yeah, this can be done.

Well, gpa needs to use gpgme's interface for receiving and sending keys. The use of the helper programs an old hack.

Werner: I'm assigning this to you. Because the underlying reason is a missing status from gpg. I think we should add that for 2.3 as any new status line tends to break things.

when can we fix it?

Closing this as invalid until the info requested in the last comment is provided.
@werner This issue also applies to GPA. Looking at the edit key interface I can't see how we can handle this. Am I overlooking something or do we just loose the error information / is it not emited by gnupg?

@sapienza Can you try it with Kleopatra please and if it fails there, too please post the "Diagnostics" from Kleopatra. (See "Blocco note" in Kleopatra for the same functionality)

Did you encrypt to a key of yours? You can only decrypt if you have the matching secret key for the public key you used for encryption. The error message: "No secret key" should be obvious.
I've tested it with Gpg4win-3.1.7, too and it works for me so something must be special.
this error comes to me when I try to decrypt a message and I get this message

And please do not use Gpg4win 3.16 but the bug fixed release 3.1.7.

Btw. I'll try to get a new release out this week. In the meantime either downgrade to 3.1.5 or use Kleopatra.
Jep that was part of Gpg4win as Gpg4win needed features / fixes from that version.

GPGME 1.12.1-beta43 is nowhere near the current master. Current is around 1.12.1-beta130 (or above) and beta 43 would've been months ago, probably early November or late October.
Feb 28 2019
Okay, this is the latest released version. I now wonder what you mean by version 1.12.1-beta43. This sounds like our current development version of the GPGME library, right? How did you install this software? Is it from Gpg4win or did you build it from source?

Which version of gpa is that?
Jan 8 2019
Yes please use the command line ( gpg --gen-key ) or Kleopatra. This issue is fixed in the latest version of the GPGME library.
Jan 7 2019
Can i generate a key using shell?
Version gpg (GnuPG) 2.2.11
Version of gpa and best also of gpgme? The latest gpa releases show that in the About dialog.
The installed version of gpg is also of inetrest. In a shell enter "gpg --version".

Regession due to my commit 10 days after the last release. Thus no need to do a release.
Should we close this or do you want to investigate why the segfault happened after the error?
I ran it with GPGME_DEBUG and it errors out at
GPGME 2018-12-07 10:34:32 <0x19c43> gpgme_op_genkey_start:293: error: Invalid argument <GPGME>
Sorry, I am still not able to replicate it:
Just by going through the standard "new key wizard".
GPA 0.11.0-beta5 [70858dc]

Can you give me a reproducer on Linux. I am not able to reproduce it. What versions of gnupg and gpgme are you using (see gpa's about)

Gets reported multiple times and should be fixed for the next Gpg4win release as it is a bad first impression. (Although it can convert users to Kleopatra ;-) )
