    Enigmail refuses to encrypt and decrypt

    Hello,

    after upgrading to 13.10 Enigmail refuses to work. I can't decrypt older messages nor encrypt new ones. GPG is working since I can encrypt text from the CLI. For example
    Code:
    echo "Test" | gpg -s
    works.

    The OpenPGP-Debug-Log says it can not find my private key. But I did not change anything compared to 13.04. I tried deactivating every single addon, including Enigmail, since I found this hint on another forum. But it did not work. When I try to decrypt a message there's an OpenPGP dialog saying: Error - Verification of signature failed (translated from german). I can't even decrypt my own emails that were encrypted by my private key, too. Any idea what's going wrong here?

    Kind regards
    Christoph

    remove your enigmail extension, then install the extension using the software center instead.

    I already do so and I always did use the Enigmail package provided by Ubuntu or Debian, respectively:

    Code:
    $ dpkg -l enigmail
    Gewünscht=Unbekannt/Installieren/R=Entfernen/P=Vollständig Löschen/Halten
    | Status=Nicht/Installiert/Config/U=Entpackt/halb konFiguriert/
             Halb installiert/Trigger erWartet/Trigger anhängig
