gniibe claimed T6818: GPGME: Finding gpgme-w32-spawn.exe should be optional.

In future, when spawn function API is used by libassuan (and stable), we can support gpgme with no gpgme-w32-spawn.exe.
(And it will be simpler, just using native functions in libassuan, instead of replacing assuan_system_hooks.)

The official GPG binary from "c:\Program Files (x86)\GnuPG\bin\gpg.exe" does not exhibit this problem. I will report it to the msys2 folks.

garyo added a comment to T7112: gpg fails on Windows when specifying absolute homedir with drive letter.

Yes, it is the msys2 build of gpg, installed using the standard msys2 methods. The pwd in my example was from msys2 zsh.
I reproduced the error running under msys2 zsh and in Powershell.
If I understand your response correctly, you are saying this will not be fixed in gnupg itself? I can report it to the cygwin/msys2 folks of course, if you think that is best. But I still suspect the root cause is in gnupg, probably in homedir.c or the code that makes an absolute path from a relative one.
I will retest with the official gpg4win and let you know the results.

There are two locks here; (1) rw_lock for card_top (list of cards) access and (2) individual card lock.
It looks for me that:

  • don't know how/what the thread 7208.2 does
  • the thread 7208.3: KEYINFO, then PKSIGN (gets read lock for card_top, then, individual card lock)
  • the thread 7208.4: SERIALNO --all (and wait for write lock for card_top)

That is an old bug report with a couple of fixes introduced over the years. As of now we sometimes see hangs on Windows on our test VMs. The common cause here seems to be USB card reader issues. Let's close this bug and wait for another bug report with current software versions.

And another note: In KF6 icon inverting happens automatically in ksvg or so, so that we don't need to ship breeze-dark anymore. And there will be a BreezeIcons library including the icons that can be used instead of the RCC file. This means we just need a quick fix for VSD and not a general solution for upstream.

One more data point: breeze-icons installs a copy of all breeze icons that do not exist in breeze-dark in the breeze-dark icons folder. So, with icon files on disk breeze-dark has all icons that breeze has even without using breeze as fallback icon theme. Looks like an oversight that the breeze-dark RCC generated by breeze-icons doesn't include missing breeze icons.

KIconTheme sets the fallback theme name to breeze, but those icons cannot be found because we only load the icon theme RCC for breeze-dark. I think we need to load both RCC files in dark mode. No, that doesn't work.

Here is my code to test differences between setlocale(LC_TIME, ".UTF8") and setlocale(LC_TIME, "") and the results on English, Japanese and Korea Windows.

I think ".UTF8" is always better than LC_TIME="" if the display string contains non-English Unicode chars.

aheinecke lowered the priority of T6630: Platform independent starter from High to Wishlist.

werner I strongly disagree here. There is no need for this for our software on Windows and that is definitely not the Windows way, esp. with our current feature set. Do you really think a user wants to start "GnuPG VS-Desktop" to then have a selection between Okular, Outlook, and Kleopatra? That is not how this works at all. Definitely not High priority for us if you think Kleopatra is too hard to discover then we could add another start menu entry for Kleopatra called "GnuPG VS-Desktop" but a starter that only offers to switch between Okular and Kleopatra currently does _not_ have high priority, For windows this is solved with the windows registry, If you want to make Okular - GnuPG Edition your default PDF reader you can, similarly for Kleopatra and please also keep in mind that a user wants to "Encrypt" or "Decrypt" a file. And does not necessarily care about Kleopatra.

FWIW, we also need this for Windows. ppl often ask what to do after they installed VSD because they can't find a program. Thus a menu ala Kontact is the way to go. It would be linked directly from a GnUPG Desktop entry from Windows. We can even keep the old Kleopatra becuase it does not harm. Whether the "menu" is a container window or a detached windows can be decided by the user, like GIMP and other tools do this.
