Enigmail - The revocation certificate could not be created

Postby elizabeth » January 10th, 2018, 11:22 pm

I tried to configure Enigmail plugin, but when I come to Key Creation and press "Create Revocation Certificate" I receive error message:

The revocation certificate could not be created.

This problem was described and resolved here:

> Is that the complete text of the error message you have received?
> If it is not, could you please copy/paste it?
> Also, what version of gpg are you running, and have you enabled in
> OpenPGP/Preferences/Advanced "Use gpg-agent for passphrases"?

That's it, thank you. Now it works.


However, I don't know: where is OpenPGP's Preferences ?

I hope you have found the answer by now Lizzy,

I have no clue myself.

It could be in Enigmail itself.

gpg-agent would typically invoke pinentry-qt if a password needed to be entered. I think you need to be closer to Enigmail for your configuration, because gpg-agent might already be configured correctly by default.

gpgconf --check-program will show you that everything is probably okay.

I solved, I generated the key manually in terminal and then imported to enigmail.
