I then clicked the browser ‘Back’ button and tried, successfully, to save again. Without the dot I get a "No such file or directory..." error (several actually). To represent keyboard input, you can wrap the key sequence with. The awesome Spacemacs experience, The backtrace captured when I do emacs --debug-init. There are many ways you can obtain someone's public key, including: Physically obtaining a copy directly from someone (e.g. And in fact a single editing syntax is not sufficient here for all uses. During initial install on Ubuntu 18.04, I receive this gpg error: Failed to verify signature archive-contents.sig: No public key for 066DAFCB81E42C40 created at 2019-12 … – Alex Schroeder. I edited. I'm clueless what MSYS2, WSL, etc are. Question: is this a problem at the melpa site or do I have to have gpg installed and operational to use melpa? See the revisions of this very page, EmacsWikiProblems, today. I think the caching problem you reported earlier is something else (and much trickier, apparently). with something like: gpg --homedir ~/.emacs.d/elpa/gnupg \ --quick-set-expire … I'm not sure if > repo/git is smart enough to import GPG keys from public keyservers or if you > need to do it beforehand. with something like: gpg --homedir ~/.emacs.d/elpa/gnupg --receive-keys 066DAFCB81E42C40 - Modify the expiration date of the old key, e.g. No matter how many colons are used for the last paragraph, it does not indent more. Well, it seems that it is signed by a different key from Tor developers keys - they should defenately update the scripts and manuals! I much prefer the simple approach used at emacs.SE, even if it means I have to change apostrophes in pasted code to backquotes. However, after clicking List only major changes it was listed. How is the reader to know if there is a meaningful distinction between these syntaxes? I believe this was suggested before by someone else, but I failed to read it carefully or comprehend its significance. It would be helpful if there were one official syntax. Perhaps simply highlight any sequence of (<[A-Z]>|\b[SMF]-(\S|f[0-9]))\b) and don’t rely on weird quotes? HTH – DrewAdams. This problem showed up after I updated MSYS2, which installed Emacs 27.1. – Thanks for your attention -- 2017-04-25, Can we shorten the text? GNU General Public License. I’d disagree with an attempt to, e.g., change existing pages to substitute . I run Emacs on MSYS2 & Windows10. No idea what caused it or what the problem is. (The main drawback to using that SE convention with Emacs stuff is that it’s not sufficient to just paste text from Emacs, e.g. Before you can do that you need to tell gpg about our public key… Trying to run my emacs again gives the same error, as if the keys had not been generated/obtained. Common sense stuff like list items and inline markup can be nested (bold list items, for example). In the printed versions, the Emacs manuals make a similar distinction (physical vs logical keys). We should generally use the same notation that Emacs itself uses for key sequences: ‘C-x’. 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 gpg --verified the files. I’ve never seen this before. The bottom line is that having four different markups to represent the same thing is unhelpful for readers and contributors. I’m just surprised that I cannot reproduce it. From a reader’s perspective, having several different syntaxes used to represent input makes it difficult to learn. This doesn’t look like a problem with the site (Emacs Wiki) but like a problem with how your package manager is set up. The associate editor handling her submission would use Alice's public key to check the signature to verify that the submission indeed came from Alice and that it had not been modified since Alice sent it. It just happened now. That is why I felt that it was safe for me to disable signature checking altogether. lost). 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 just started using emacs, so I don't know which folders should exist and where. But ##"<2>"## renders correctly: "<2>". In order to verify a signature, you will first need the public GPG key of the person who created the signature. I disagree that we should recommend that users use to represent key sequences. Some regular expression to specify how to recognise the markup would be great. And I do think it’s a bit unfortunate that in some cases (e.g. If Spacemacs maintainers feel differently, please proceed as you prefer. (Five consecutive apostrophes used to produce bold italic, for example. The same goes for representation of input and output, file names, and other things. Save it in the … – AlexSchroeder, I just edited and saved a reply someone posted at DrewsElispLibraries. Yes, it’s a bit of a pain, and somewhat error prone (you need to check well), but that’s what it takes. Observed behaviour: And even that doesn’t work if you use the Download link. 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). (e.g. 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. Once you have it, import the key into GPG. 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? – Alex Schroeder, See UnicodeEncoding#ucs-cmds.el. 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. Are they thus confused also by Emacs help? It is uncommon, but not rare, that I have to fiddle here. Looking at, e.g. This question has also been raised on emacs.StackExchange.. Now, the doc string explains: ‘default’ (to compute a value according to ‘url-privacy-level’). I see. It’s a rare exception when I have to fiddle there (embedded backquote chars). as rendered on Stack Exchange) is OK for indicating physical keyboard keys, such as ‘Alt’, ‘Ctrl’ (or ‘Control’) and ‘Enter’ (or ‘Return’). There's a variable that I think is called package-check-package-signatures, but I won't swear to it. "<2>" might do what you want: "<2>". set package-check-signature to nil, e.g. It doesn’t help readers or writers. Why are some so much more cumbersome to type? 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. – Alex Schroeder. No one here disagrees with Occam’s razor: Don’t multiply things unnecessarily. It’s only a bit hairy when it comes to embedding/rendering backquote chars themselves. I was able to update the GPG key adding the keyserver argument to gpg. You can remove this problem unless you want to keep it as a reminder to look for a better solution. And that suffices for 99.9% of our needs for Emacs. I disagree that what matters most is that there is one syntax that is designated as correct. gpg --homedir ~/.emacs.d/elpa/gnupg --keyserver hkp://keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 066DAFCB81E42C40 WIth that, the elpa archive gets updated. What about you? – DrewAdams. I install CentOS 5.5 on my laptop (it has no … The value of that is (email) for me. I certainly don’t use a combination of different editing syntaxes gratuitously – I do so only when I see that I have to. This problem started several months ago. And as a contributor, which syntax should I use? from someone's website) Failed to verify signature archive-contents.sig: No public key for 066DAFCB81E42C40 created at 2019-09-26T16:10:02-0500 using RSA. Thanks, Alex. Unfortunately, we don’t have such a simple, single editing syntax here (AFAIK). Then you can run a verification with the signature file belonging to the downloaded file you want to check: gpg [.asc file] Make sure you have the corresponding OpenVPN package in the same directory. to your account. privacy statement. Then I fix those up using quote chars plus `##’, or whatever. Either it is an Emacs 27.1 fix, or Spacemacs' default init.el template will set this variable to nil. M-x package-install RET gnu-elpa-keyring-update RET. – DrewAdams, Anybody else? I can only speak for myself, but I will be much more interested in contributing here if this issue is solved. This then looks like a problem specific to your setup or your OS. This is expected and perfectly normal." I’m guessing it was a cache problem nevertheless, but thought I’d mention it, in case it’s not. Sounds reasonable to me. It’s that the simple ones of using ##, or backquote followed by apostrophe (like Emacs), or or each have their drawbacks in some contexts (including for some key sequences). There could also be other issues such as missing programs to check the signatures or misconfiguation of some tools. I think that if people are reading through that page, that’s not the message they’re getting. GNU The browser cache does not get refreshed when pages are edited and saved. I see no harm in adding it: C-x C-s → C-x C-s – Alex Schroeder. I just got this error when trying to save a page after some simple (trivial) editing. Each OpenPGP key may have signatures from other users. So I ended up doing 55, 56, 57, and 58, before I realized that the major edit for 54 had been undone (i.e. In other words, the first time I looked for the pubring.kbx file on the laptop I did see the gnupg (without the dot) directory. Another consideration is the zillions of existing occurrences here. And if it turns out that nobody ever uses the kbd element, then we can remove it again. Just to emphasise the nature of the error I encountered: gpg failed when the pathname was a concatenation of a Posix current working directory and Windows target path (with forward slashes), e.g., /c/Users/977315/tmp/c:/Users/977315/.emacs.d/elpa/gnupg/pubring.kbx. Check server time, its fine. Usually I am able to verify signatures using the verify option in GPG, but this doesn't work when attempting to verify the Litecoin Core client DMG.. For example: $ gpg --verify litecoin-0.14.2-osx.dmg.asc litecoin-0.14.2-osx.dmg gpg: Signature made Mon Jul 31 14:44:45 2017 PDT gpg: using RSA key FE3348877809386C gpg: Can't check signature: No public key But melpa and org archives do not: (Spacemacs) - … In some cases the server might actually be at fault - still makes sense to group them like this. 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. On GNU/Linux I would have suggested examining TMPDIR or similar environment variables, but I doubt that matters for you. gpg: Can't check signature: public key not found This morning I tried the following (see #13866 (comment) and #13866 (comment) as reference): Following the second step, a bunch of keys were automatically added (I did not write down the messages). There are several hundred regular expressions banning user agents of various sorts, so what you’re saying could definitely happen. Let users use what they want to do what they want. I’m pretty sure it used to work. Save it in a Folder.Step 3, Acquire a copy of the signature-file in question. file on a USB drive) Download it from the internet (e.g. To repeat: this issue arose on Emacs 27.1 distributed for Windows via MSYS2/MinGW64. It’s just a description of what the rendering system does. 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. (You need to put some spaces after the `:’.). For example, to check the signature of the file gnupg-2.2.24.tar.bz2, you can use this command: $ gpg --verify gnupg-2.2.24.tar.bz2.sig gnupg-2.2.24.tar.bz2. Command output: gpg: Signature made Thu 26 Sep 2019 04:10:02 PM CDT using RSA key ID 81E42C40. – AlexSchroeder, Just an FYI that this problem has not disappeared, even if it is less frequent. Step 1: Import the public key. We’ll occasionally send you account related emails. Now that emacs can find MinGW64's gnupg, the package list updates normally without any errors. We should be able to have :: align more or less with ** etc. I read TextFormattingRules again and it seems pretty good to me. Set that using set-variable so the change is ephemeral; M-x package-list-packages; Install gnu-elpa-keyring package; Quit emacs; Restart If you already have a trusted version of GnuPG installed, you can check the supplied signature. Thanks for looking into this. 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. 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. The public key it was signed with; The .asc file itself; You do already have the signed .exe file and the signature. – AlexSchroeder. It sounds like the public > key of the signer of that v1.12.4 tag can't be found. They’ll see multiple ways to do things, and if they want to specifically highlight keypresses, then they can do it. To install the correct version of gnupg, issue the following in MSYS2 shell: Then make sure that your PATH points to this gnupg and not the MSYS2 one: After this fix, my Spacemacs starts OK with no errors. Following the notes at the kernel.org site, but I cannot seem to verify the signature of the kernel. Consider, for instance, a linked file name, such as apu.el. All the other formatting rules are still explained on the page, after all. 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. In this case, I think the drawback is indeed significant. Remember that in order for them to be able to decrypt your file, they need your public key too. In the same browser session, I updated page DoReMi and saved. I used cygwin in 1990's, but I have not used WIndows for over 10 years (other than being conduit to access other OS'es), so I'm afraid I can't help you. Interestingly, the markup in this particular header renders properly in the TOC, Markup cannot be nested by default. WIth that, the elpa archive gets updated. reset package-check-signature to … Check server time, its fine. This causes people to download the wrong version of a page (e.g. So, FWIW, I request that a simple, consistent syntax be designated for marking up keyboard input, one that renders nicely and is easy to read and input as markup. And it would be helpful if it rendered in HTML using tags, which tend to look distinct in current browsers. Then I preview, to see which things didn’t render well. On my laptop the path was without the dot from the start. Successfully merging a pull request may close this issue. some key sequences) the only thing we can get, that approximates Emacs help, involves a different form of single-quote chars. 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. Some more info on this, in case it helps. This yearning for one correct way sounds a bit OCD, to me. It didn’t work. restriction. Very few markup elements can in fact be nested. Here are the contents of the *Error Buffer*: The *Messages* buffer shows package update notes, the failure to update the gnu archive and multiple failures to load packages: Expected behaviour: ❤️ But now we’re telling them that they should convert each such quoted key sequence (obtained from Emacs) to -embedded sequences (for the wiki). And it causes people to accidentally overwrite a previous edit by someone else (since it doesn’t appear in the editable text unless they refresh that text). I know that some people have thought that the problem was that pages were not being locked properly for edits, so that two people editing at the same time could accidentally overwrite each other’s edits. – DrewAdams. "gpg: Can't check signature: No public key" Is this normal? What benefit is there to advocating two slightly different syntaxes that are intended to mean the same thing? And it means that when copy+pasting from Emacs itself, you need to change `something' to something everywhere – a royal pain. Signing files with any other key will give a different signature. There are many ways you can obtain someone's public key, including: Physically obtaining a copy directly from someone (e.g. 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. Could it be that it's a keystroke error?. Perhaps diff3 will sometimes merge things and drop changes without marking them as a conflict? Signature checking perhaps can be enabled then. – DrewAdams, Hm, maybe this is unrelated. – DrewAdams. Following these verification instructions will ensure the downloaded files really came from us. In order to verify a signature, you will first need the public GPG key of the person who created the signature. # dpkg-source -x libevent_2.0.12-stable-1.dsc gpgv: Signature made Fri Jun 17 07:12:50 2011 PDT using DSA key ID 7ADF9466 gpgv: Can't check signature: public key not found dpkg-source: warning: failed to verify signature on ./libevent_2.0.12-stable-1.dsc Any idea how to fix this warning? I refrefreshed RecentChanges (with rollbacks and minor changes included), but my edit does not appear. Typing quote marks doesn’t suffice on the wiki, however, for some key sequences and other fixed-width font renderings. Restart Emacs several times until things settle down. Just one opinion.
