ERROR get_passphrase 85 after reinstalling MacPGP

Reported by Andreas Jung | August 17th, 2015 @ 12:51 AM

After reinstalling MacGPG (gpg (GnuPG) 1.4.19) I receive the following error while signing/encrypting outgoing emails:

USERID_HINT 00DC7F3EEEE00663 .......
NEED_PASSPHRASE 00DC7F3EEEE00663 00DC7F3EEEE00663 1 0
ERROR get_passphrase 85

    It looks like showing the password requester fails (it's handled by gpg2 and not by MailMate itself). Where did you get the version number? I get this:

    > /usr/local/MacGPG2/bin/gpg2 --version
    gpg (GnuPG/MacGPG2) 2.0.28
    libgcrypt 1.6.3
    ...
    

    (I believe this is the latest release.)

    • State changed from “new” to “cantreproduce”

    Ok, so we are on the same version and I've verified that the password requester works for me.

    It'll probably be easier to debug if it can be reproduced from the command line. MailMate has a debug mode (MmDebugSecurity) in which all gpg2 commands are dumped, but it's a bit verbose. Essentially, this is what happens when signing:

    echo "test" | gpg2 --no-verbose --batch --no-tty --openpgp --status-fd 2 --digest-algo SHA1 --textmode --armor --local-user "<foobar@example.com>" --detach-sign
    

    This triggers the password requester for me. Could you try the same with your email address and see if you get the password requester?

    (Make sure gpg2 --version is also the MacGPG2 version of gpg2.)

    Problem resolved after a reboot.
    I also noticed that the MacOSX security settings on my Mac have changed because I could no longer start Mailmate because of Gatekeepter settings.

    Glad it was resolved for now although I'm always a bit wary about problems resolved by rebooting.

    (Hmm, Gatekeeper would usually not be triggered except if redownloading MailMate.)
