Bug Description

The default value provided for gpg_config_path in kgpgrc is out of date. Prior versions of Kgpg ignored this; the version of Kgpg in Precise is now enforcing that the value be set correctly. Kgpg in Precise will fail to run with the unsupported value.

old, out-of-date setting: gpg_config_path=$HOME/.gnupg/options

new, required setting: gpg_config_path=$HOME/.gnupg/gpg.conf

Please see KDE bug 290221 ( for more information.

I've uploaded a new kubuntu-default-settings to precise and to the kubuntu-ppa/backports PPA for oneiric.

It stops trying to pre-set kgpg options in kgpgrc, this means we will need to live with a first run wizard but I can't see how to avoid that
