FS#1106 - Gajim "Unable to run gpg - it may not be available"

Description:

Gajim XMPP Client wont start after installing python2-gnupg.

Additional info:
* package version(s)

  community/python2-gnupg 0.4.0-2
  extra/gajim 0.16.8-1.hyperbola2

* config and/or log files etc.

/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gajim/common/gajim.py

Steps to reproduce:

With Gajim working is not possible to assign an OpenPGP key because it needs a wrapper. Therefore python2-gnupgp package is needed. But after installing python2-gnupgp, Gajim doesn’t start. The following output is displayed from the console:


07/21/2018 18:00:41 (E) gajim.c.gnupg Unable to run gpg - it may not be available.

  raise OSError(msg)

OSError: Unable to run gpg - it may not be available.


After doing some search, the issue is that gajim.py is trying to call ‘gpg’ as ‘gpg1’.

# grep -n GPG_BINARY /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gajim/common/gajim.py
162:GPG_BINARY = ‘gpg1’

By replacing ‘gpg’ instead of ‘gpg1’, Gajim will start normally with OpenPGP feature available.

Maybe a newer revision of python2-gnupg is required or maybe a small patch in the current package.
