[maemo-developers] Failure with Claws PGP on maemo5 device n900

As I said, the self-symlinking of the plugins is a result of a bug in
Maemo auto-optification.

The PGP plugins are part of the claws-mail package.  If I were to
unoptify that it would take up a considerable amount of the precious
space available on the device root -_-.

Since the problem I forwarded you *is* the cause of the problem, and
the actual .deb is thus fine, here's what I recommend you do:

- Download the claws-mail-pgp-plugins ARMEL deb
  ( http://repository.maemo.org/extras-devel/pool/fremantle/free/c/claws-mail/claws-mail-pgp-plugins_3.7.3-1maemo4_armel.deb ).
- "ar x claws-mail-pgp-plugins_3.7.3-1maemo4_armel.deb"
- tar xvzf data.tar.gz
- rm /opt/maemo/usr/lib/claws-mail/plugins/pgp*
- cp
  usr/lib/claws-mail/plugins/pgp* /opt/maemo/usr/lib/claws-mail/plugins

That should get you the real files.  Hopefully the Maemo folks will
work quickly to resolve this (pretty terrible) bug.
