    Default Updating BC4 using a PPA?

    Hi,

    I recently installed BC4 through the downloadable .deb file.
    I found out that it seems to add a PPA link to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

    If I try to update BC4 via aptitude, I get the warning about an untrusted source. It seems the GPG key for it is missing?

    I could update it anyway, but the warning is annoying. How can I fix it?

    Hello,

    The key is normally part of our installation process. Which OS (version and 64bit?) did you install to, and you used the main i386.deb package, correct?

    I think I had a similar problem a while ago. I do not currently have the problem.

    In my notes I have an entry for 2014-04-08 that I used "seahorse" (the shell command for launching the Passwords and Keys utility) to import the key http://www.scootersoftware.com/RPM-G...cootersoftware.

    At that time I was running BC 4.0.0.17887 or 4.0.0.17905.

    Does Aptitude show packages that are up to date? I installed it along with the BC 4.0 launch release, but do not see bcompare in the list of packages to be updated (since it is already the latest release). How are you launching aptitude, or what actions do you take once it is launched? If you try apt-get update, do you see similar GPG errors?

    And are you using the latest build, 4.0.0 18847 (the first non-beta release)?

    Hi, I updated this today

    Code:
    bcompare:i386 4.0.0-18746 -> 4.0.0-18847
    Now, when I look into aptitude, the new version doesn't contain this warning. Invoking
    Code:
    apt-key list
    shows me the Scootersoftware Key, which I imported manually with
    Code:
    apt-key add /usr/lib/beyondcompare/GPG-KEY-SCOOTERSOFTWARE
    before.

    Maybe I misunderstood something here with Aptitude?

    Hello,

    I suspect the 18847 update should have imported the key for you, but we'll keep an eye on this to make sure we're installing this key correctly.

    I don't have that file on my system, but I do have "/usr/lib/beyondcompare/GPG-KEY-scootersoftware"

    Is it possible that there has been an error in packaging the latest version and the filename case is wrong?

    "warning about an untrusted source"

    I just got that warning yesterday when I upgraded BC4 (actual package name "bcompare:i386") from version 4.0.0-18847 to 4.0.1-19165, using synaptic.

    Code:
    $ ll -h /usr/lib/beyondcompare/GPG-KEY-scootersoftware 
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 root root 1.7K Nov 11 17:58 /usr/lib/beyondcompare/GPG-KEY-scootersoftware

    No, the lower case version is the correct case type. Talking with our Linux developer, the all upper case version probably won't work on a case sensitive system like Linux.

    Chrestomanci points out that the case for the key should be lowercase:
    /usr/lib/beyondcompare/GPG-KEY-scootersoftware

    If this does not help, I would recommend backing up your current settings with the Tools menu -> Export, run the Uninstaller, then remove any instance of the key and our url from your APT repository. With this clean slate, then try running our latest .deb installer again and see if this helps auto generate everything correctly. Please be sure there aren't any errors during the install process.
