    Default xfce: seahorse refuses to create new pgp key.



    I start paswords and keys (aka seahorse). Click new. Click PGP key. Fill name, email, comment.
    The create button remains disabled.

    This is a fresh 12.3 install from dvd with some gnome elements (from package depends). All mandatory
    patches applied.

    Session startup has launch gnome services on startup active.

    Applications certificate and key storage (gnome keyring: pkcs#11 component) and GPG password
    agent (gnome keyring: GPG agent) are both set to start (application autostart).

    I always use "gpg" at the command line to create new keys, so I haven't tried that.

    1: Are you using "gdm" or "kdm" for login?
    2: Is the seahorse daemon running?
    3: What's the output from
    Code:
    printenv | egrep 'SSH|GPG'
    openSUSE Leap 15.1; KDE Plasma 5;
    testing Leap 15.2Alpha

    Neither :-)

    The default for XFCE installs is "lightdm"

    No. It will not run till the first key is created, IIRC. It is configured to start in sesion
    properties, but it is not because there are no keys yet (I think).

    Code:
    cer@rescate1:~> printenv | egrep 'SSH|GPG'
    GPG_AGENT_INFO=/run/user/1000/keyring-nIObTb/gpg:0:1
    SSH_AUTH_SOCK=/run/user/1000/keyring-nIObTb/ssh
    GPG_TTY=/dev/pts/1
    cer@rescate1:~>


    I started seahorse-daemon from a terminal by accident a minute ago. Tried to create a key, failed.

    [...]

    Solved!

    The name field needs to contain 2 words. Ie "cer" is not valid, but "cer ." is. After there are 2
    words in there, the accept button lights up.

    iiiich!
