Nautilus seahorse plugin does not decrypt *.pgp files.

Asked by Tim Kersten

The nautilus seahorse plugin will encrypt files perfectly for me. The problem is that it will not decrypt them. It has not got the .pgp mime type assigned to it.

Decrypting .gpg works fine. Just .pgp does not work.

I spoke with "sadam" on the freenode irc #seahorse channel, who asked me to do the following. He also updated the seahorse cvs appropriatly.

I updated /usr/share/mime-info/seahorse.mime to the following:
 ext: gpg pgp asc

 ext: gpg pgp asc

 ext: sig

 ext: key keys

and then ran the following command:
# sudo update-mime-database /usr/share/mime

Unfortunely, this still did not seem to fix the problem for me, but it did however fix it for sadam. I'm not sure what OS he was using.
I'm using Dapper (installed from beta1 text-install and all updates applied).
