Description Petr Pisar 2015-07-14 06:13:38 UTC
When starting mutt with crypt_use_gpgme configuration option set to "yes", the mutt complains about missing gpg-agent and waits for a key press:

$ LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 mutt

Using GPGME backend, although no gpg-agent is running
Press any key to continue...

Recent gnupg2's gpg-agent does not export any environment variables, so the mutt's check is pointless and annoying. I have installed:

$ rpm -q mutt gnupg2 gpgme

I guess you should apply this upstream patch <>.

Comment 1 Petr Pisar 2015-08-25 07:58:23 UTC
Which mutt build delivers the fix? I cannot see anything newer than the affected mutt-1.5.23-9.fc22.x86_64.

Comment 2 Petr Pisar 2015-08-31 06:22:17 UTC
I'm sorry, but it's not fixed in Fedora 22.

Comment 3 Matej Mužila 2015-08-31 13:45:16 UTC

it should be fixed in f23 (mutt-5:1.5.23-10.20150609hg17a4f92e4a95.fc23).

There is used newer snapshot of mutt (because in version 1.5.23 it uses deprecated gnutls functions not available in fedora >= 23). The snapshot used in fedora >= 23 should contain the upstream patch.

Yes, the CURRENTRELEASE resolution was not chosen properly.

Comment 4 Fedora Update System 2015-09-29 21:34:30 UTC
mutt-1.5.24-1.fc22 has been submitted as an update to Fedora 22.

Comment 5 Fedora Update System 2015-10-03 21:18:11 UTC
mutt-1.5.24-1.fc22 has been pushed to the Fedora 22 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
