Sorry, didn’t see the dependency to
It will add a menu entry, but it will only allow to launch the applet (or a new instance of the applet). The D-Bus back-end would be needed so that launching the app would open the main windows.
I’ll still create the .desktop file but it’s only a small part of the work.

What is ? The absence of proper app with dbus backend ? If so, yes.
In the Debian package, the .desktop file exists and works. It is only needed to replace it with our own version (tor-enabled) when pulling it from Debian (
Feature #10190, I see that you set it to in progress, thanks, I will work on it next week).

Bug #11781 shows that I got it wrong. There’s a reason why this ticket (Feature #7435) is a subtask of Feature #7433: at least in the context of Tails, it makes no sense to have a launcher in the Applications menu, until there is actually something (else than the systray icon) to launch. So I’m going to follow-up on Bug #11781 by proposing a patch that hides this launcher for the time being, until the rest of Feature #7433 is done.

The launcher is currently labelled “OpenPGP-Applet” while I think it should be “OpenPGP Applet” (like in the description of the package). I’m not sure what’s the proper way of translating this into Redmine. Shall I mark this ticket as “Confirmed” and “Dev Needed” again?

No, actually it’s been uploaded meanwhile (1.0-2).
It’s just the same issue as outlined in
Bug #14982: the fix is in debian (unstable and testing), but not in Tails since it requires updating the snapshot we use.
Once we move the “upstream” issues, the issues here will be changed to reflect this, and hopefully we can make clear what type of work is actually needed :D

OpenPGP applet is moving to its new home on https://salsa.debian.org/openpgp-applet-team/openpgp-applet
This issue has NOT been duplicated upstream, as it is a Tails-specific issue
This comment is just to prove it hasn’t been overlooked.

I beg to disagree: this is an important part of
Feature #7433 aka. https://salsa.debian.org/openpgp-applet-team/openpgp-applet/issues/1. If that ever gets implemented upstream, we’ll need a
.desktop file upstream, that allows starting the OpenPGP Applet without going through a systray icon. What do you think?

I’m not sure it warrant a separate issue, at this stage at least.
How about we just add something to https://salsa.debian.org/openpgp-applet-team/openpgp-applet/issues/1 ? it’s already implied by the description (app is hard to find), but it can be made more explicit.

FTR I still don’t understand why “it is a Tails-specific issue”, which is the part I was not agreeing with.
