I was able to update the GPG key adding the keyserver argument to gpg. It is then not surprising that maintainers of melpa or other archives have not yet made the required changes. Sign up for a free GitHub account to open an issue and contact its maintainers and the community. privacy statement. WIth that, the elpa archive gets updated. There are many ways you can obtain someone's public key, including: Physically obtaining a copy directly from someone (e.g. Free Documentation License, the So I request that the two of you pick one syntax and document it as the recommended one, without also recommending unnecessary alternatives on the TextFormattingRules page, which is already very complicated. Which means that we resort to something slightly different (usually involving using both (1) quote marks, to get the quote-mark representation, and (2) `##’, to get the code font. What’s gained by such a recommendation? Why are some so much more cumbersome to type? As Alex has written in the MissionStatement, etc, EmacsWiki is not the Emacs manual, and it serves a different purpose, so it need not match the same standards, especially when doing so would have a significant drawback. If they’re the same then why recommend the one that’s much harder to type? Now you can download the open source installer file or tarball you wish to check, along with its signature file, and have them in the same location. Very few markup elements can in fact be nested. In the guide to verifying the ISO on the Linux Mint website it does say "Note: Unless you trusted this signature in the past, or a signature which trusted it, GPG should warn you that the signature is not trusted. It just happened now. I added that snippet into the dotspacemacs/user-init part of my init.el, and Spacemacs downloaded the required packages and started succesfully. The person may name the signature-file anything they want: the names of the file and the signature-file do not need to be similar or related. The cache problem occurs however, even for an edit that is long after (days after) the last edit has been saved, so it is not a lock problem. I don’t have a problem with (Anonymous?) with something like: gpg --homedir ~/.emacs.d/elpa/gnupg --receive-keys 066DAFCB81E42C40 - Modify the expiration date of the old key, e.g. If the public key distributed by Red Hat Enterprise Linux does not match the private key during RPM verification, the package may have been altered and therefore cannot be trusted. I can only speak for myself, but I will be much more interested in contributing here if this issue is solved. – AlexSchroeder. (You need to put some spaces after the `:’.). If you look at the revisions of BookmarkPlus between Revision 53 and Revision 58, you’ll see that Revision 54 was a major edit, then 55 was a minor edit. derivative works have to grant the same rights and impose the same This is not document anywhere, I think. We’ll occasionally send you account related emails. I tried yet again to get emacs-w3m to work as described above. some key sequences) the only thing we can get, that approximates Emacs help, involves a different form of single-quote chars. Failed to verify signature archive-contents.sig: No public key for 066DAFCB81E42C40 created at 2019-09-26T16:10:02-0500 using RSA. – AlexSchroeder, Just an FYI that this problem has not disappeared, even if it is less frequent. gpg --verified the files. This may seem like a small issue, but I think it contributes to “death by a thousand papercuts” here. Now it can sometimes do crazy things, depending on where it occurs.). – Alex Schroeder, The navigation menus on the left of the site overflow into the page content in some languages such as a Russian. If you already have a trusted version of GnuPG installed, you can check the supplied signature. Marking up keyboard input/key sequences/whatever is a fundamental part of writing Emacs documentation, and there is currently far too much friction to doing so here. Then clicked Edit the page and got the old page source, before my edit and save. (In reply to Gregory Szorc [:gps] from comment #36) > Git supports signing commits and tags with GPG. In some cases the server might actually be at fault - still makes sense to group them like this. M-: (setq package-check-signature nil) RET. The RPM utility within Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 automatically tries to verify the GPG signature of … In order to verify a signature, you will first need the public GPG key of the person who created the signature. Assuming this isssue is not related to some details of my laptop setup, it still requires a fix of some kind. the source of GetHelp, as I mentioned, there were 4 different syntaxes used within the space of a few paragraphs, and it was not clear which one was correct or preferred. Apparently our url-privacy-level differs? It needs to be in the (defun dotspacemacs/user-init () function of your .spacemacs so that it takes effect before the repos are checked. CreativeCommons Some more info on this, in case it helps. $ gpg --import yourfriends.key That key will have their name and email in it, just like the one you made. However, after clicking List only major changes it was listed. But ##"<2>"## renders correctly: "<2>". I wonder what that means, exactly. Restart Emacs several times until things settle down. All it does it make the task harder for readers and contributors. It’s a rare exception when I have to fiddle there (embedded backquote chars). It is not great for indicating Emacs key sequences, which are logical. Just one opinion. If they don’t actually care about markup, then they can stop reading as soon as they’re happy. On my laptop the path was without the dot from the start. Then I preview, to see which things didn’t render well. gpg --export -a "Your Name" > your.key I just started using emacs, so I don't know which folders should exist and where. For example, you may choose to receive this work under Of course, this is your wiki, and Drew’s put a lot of work into this over the years as well, so I’m not trying to disrespect either of you or usurp your authority. In the printed versions, the Emacs manuals make a similar distinction (physical vs logical keys). Question: is this a problem at the melpa site or do I have to have gpg installed and operational to use melpa? Thanks. By clicking “Sign up for GitHub”, you agree to our terms of service and – DrewAdams, Anybody else? – DrewAdams, I think the problem is that the HTML being generated right now is invalid:
- indent 2
– I don’t think this ever worked as you intended it to. This issue may have been resolved (see Emacs Bug) which actually is not a bug but my (user) error. I’ve never seen this before. Evil mode is not active. Even if multiple syntaxes are allowed, for historical reasons if nothing else, there is no reason to recommend three different ways of doing it. The awesome Spacemacs experience, The backtrace captured when I do emacs --debug-init. And I do think it’s a bit unfortunate that in some cases (e.g. when trying to get the key: I encounter the same issue, too, right after installing Spacemacs and updating packages: Seems to be a path issue: /c/Program Files/Emacs/c:/Users/flcon/AppData/Roaming/.emacs.d/elpa/gnupg/pubring.kbx. Alternatively, you may choose to receive this work under any other That wiki page is listed, but still at the time and user of the previous edit. And as a contributor, which syntax should I use? Or Территория Е. Л.? This problem has bitten several people, and the only workaround seems to be to remember to manually force a cache refresh when, say, you are looking at the editable page. To represent keyboard input, you can wrap the key sequence with. I then clicked the browser ‘Back’ button and tried, successfully, to save again. Simple, explicit, already an HTML tag. Since you do not have keys of those people in the keyring, GnuPG can’t verify the signatures and this is what you’re being warned about. The public key it was signed with; The .asc file itself; You do already have the signed .exe file and the signature. It didn’t work. And it means that when copy+pasting from Emacs itself, you need to change `something' to something
everywhere – a royal pain. What do you suggest we do? It’s one of the reasons I’ve preferred publishing my own documentation, like this, rather than contributing here. C:\emacs>gpg --verify emacs-24.3-bin-i386.zip.sig gpg: Signature made 03/17/13 19:55:46 GMT Standard Time using RSA key ID 597F9E69 gpg: Can't check signature: No public key C:\emacs>gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 597F9E69 gpg: requesting key 597F9E69 from hkp server keys.gnupg.net gpg: key 597F9E69: public key "Christoph Scholtes " imported gpg… GNU For example, on GetHelp, I count at least 4, slightly differing syntaxes used to markup keyboard input. I had to package-inatall them manually: Shouldn't the path have ".gnupg" with a dot?. – DrewAdams. Sounds reasonable to me. *Error Buffer* has a message. Once you have it, import the key into GPG. What about you? Why is it necessary? The value of that is (email) for me. And even that doesn’t work if you use the Download link. Have a question about this project? All the other formatting rules are still explained on the page, after all. On my iPad it looks as follows: The variant you prefer would be this, correct? Consider, for instance, a linked file name, such as apu.el. rGb6275f3bda8e: gpg: Fix extra check for sign usage of a data signature. The text was updated successfully, but these errors were encountered: I was able to reproduce this issue in bare Emacs (emacs -Q) by issuing the 'package-list' command. I can then close it with a link on how it got resolved. The complaint is that I changed the Use this directive to You can use. I will not close this issue as yet for just in case there is something else going on. How is the reader to know if there is a meaningful distinction between these syntaxes? Spacemacs splash window comes partially up, but Spacemacs or Evil mode are not active. Perhaps diff3 will sometimes merge things and drop changes without marking them as a conflict? This page is for recording (or discussion) of current apparent Problems with the EmacsWiki Web site. If your keys are already too old, causing signature verification errors when installing packages, then in order to install this package you can do the following: - Fetch the new key manually, e.g. I have no idea. gpg --verify callrecording-13.0.9.tgz.gpg gpg: Signature made Fri 15 Jan 2016 09:39:31 AM CST using RSA key ID 69D2EAD9 gpg: requesting key 69D2EAD9 from hkp server keys.pgp.com gpg: keyserver timed out gpg: Can’t check signature: No public key I guess I’m OK with the workaround, though it indents too far and adds too much vertical whitespace. The purpose is to point out problems to the site maintainers. as rendered on Stack Exchange) is OK for indicating physical keyboard keys, such as ‘Alt’, ‘Ctrl’ (or ‘Control’) and ‘Enter’ (or ‘Return’). Are they thus confused also by Emacs help? reset package-check-signature to … – AlexSchroeder. My points remain, as does my request: That there be a single recommended keyboard-input markup; that it be clearly presented in TextFormattingRules as the recommended markup; that alternative markup not be equally recommended. If you want quoted stuff, e.g., ‘something’, to be rendered in a code font then you have to change the apostrophe to a backquote char.). Upon spacemacs restart, the warning messages in the Message buffer are gone and I do not get the Error buffer about the failure to load the archive-contents.sig. We should generally use the same notation that Emacs itself uses for key sequences: ‘C-x’. Some regular expression to specify how to recognise the markup would be great. I think the caching problem you reported earlier is something else (and much trickier, apparently). – AlexSchroeder. similar licenses. AFAIK, we don’t have such a thing. Perhaps just use ЕмаксЛиспа? But I’ve said all of this before. This issue does not impact me, since I build all my packages myself, i.e., I create something like MELPA on my own local machine, and install. If you're having trouble because a package isn't signed with the key you have yet you can temporarily set. The scenario is like this: I download the RPMs, I copy them to DVD. I do not claim 100% for it to be resolved until I figure out a way to test it on Spacemacs. Emphasis markup using apostrophes is the online inline markup that can be nested: ''italic '''bold''' and italic'' → italic bold and italic. This yearning for one correct way sounds a bit OCD, to me. gpg: Can't check signature: public key not found If you haven’t actually tried to represent lots of different keys or code sequences here then it might be easy to suppose that a single editing syntax is an obvious approach. with something like: gpg --homedir ~/.emacs.d/elpa/gnupg \ --quick-set-expire … Looking at, e.g. They’ll see multiple ways to do things, and if they want to specifically highlight keypresses, then they can do it. Drew, I appreciate your taking the time to write that response, but it doesn’t address the arguments I’ve made since I started this discussion. And there’s a reason that Emacs itself uses quotes, even beyond the obvious one that the default font is typically the same one used for key sequences and the like (a fixed-width font): When you have a key sequence such as C-x n a a a reader can mistake the sequence limits. In most cases that works fine for the wiki. I disagree that we should recommend that users use to represent key sequences. It worked. gpg: public key not found: verbose: Linux - Newbie: 4: 12-31-2009 04:00 PM: Revoking GPG key with only passphrase and public key: djib: Linux - Security: 2: 03-13-2007 04:20 AM: apt-get GPG signature check unknow/illegal/corrupt: mofo: Linux - Software: 2: 05-20-2005 02:59 PM: GPG Data, Secret Key but no Public Key? The Safari edit did not show up in the compose edit box, even though the page did show it. Note that this page is not about EmacsWikiMode. I was just bitten by this again – I had to redo a bunch of edits as a result. There could also be other issues such as missing programs to check the signatures or misconfiguation of some tools. Dunno if this is strictly related to the browser cache problem that I’ve been assuming exists, but there is a fine example of losing page updates that just occurred. And even if were now such a cure-all thing (which I doubt, but haven’t tested), it’s certainly a verbose way of editing (a minor pain). Now, the doc string explains: ‘default’ (to compute a value according to ‘url-privacy-level’). This was for win 7 and MSYS2 with the same incorrect windows path appended to a unix path. No magic or edge cases. Temporarily disable signature checking in package. This page is not for questions or problems about Emacs – see OpenQuestions for that. You’ll see that this sequence of events took place: Vegard’s update wiped out my previous update. I disagree with a proposal to use something like for Emacs key sequences. Quotes set the thing that is quoted off from the surrounding text. Or that the path is fine, but somewhere that folder should have been created and it wasn't?. Now I’m not a zealous practitioner of the Zen of Python, but neither am I an uncritical follower of TMTOWTDI. Then I followed the instructions again in emacs-w3m. Somewhere I found that you could install the package "gnu-elpa-keyring-update" to help with this, but this had no effect for me, my emacs still fails to start, I'm stuck not even being able to run my first prelude boot. Or he used a raw client that interacts with the wiki text directly, didn’t post back the last modification date, thus diff3 was unable to determine the ancestor for conflict resolution, and he ended up overwriting what you had done. gpg --homedir ~/.emacs.d/elpa/gnupg --keyserver hkp://keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 066DAFCB81E42C40 WIth that, the elpa archive gets updated. There are many ways you can obtain someone's public key, including: Physically obtaining a copy directly from someone (e.g. Note that I have not requested that support for alternative markups be eliminated, nor that uses of them be replaced across the wiki.
