Kleopatra packaging notes
=========================

The build dependencies should be fairly straightforward (see CMakeLists.txt)

Runtime Dependencies
====================

Kleopatra is a GUI for GnuPG so it needs a working GnuPG setup.

- gnupg2
-- gnupg-agent (part of gnupg2 sources)
-- dirmngr (part of gnupg2 sources)
-- gpgsm (part of gnupg2 sources)

- Pinentry (Qt / Gtk / Gnome)

- PaperKey (http://www.jabberwocky.com/software/paperkey/)

For Pinentry preferably pinentry-qt alternatively pinentry-gtk2 and
pinentry-gnome also work. Pinentry-curses does not work for Kleopatra.

Kleopatra may work with gnupg 1, too but the selftest will
warn about this and some functionality will be unavailable. It should
depend on gnupg2. GnuPG 2.1.x is supported, too.

You can use Kleopatra's selftest to check your packaging it should
show no errors.

PaperKey is not checked in selftest but users will get a warning
and a failure if they try to "Print Secret Key" if paperkey is
not installed.

Downstream Dependers
====================

- Dolphin
Kleopatra provided crypto integration for Dolphin through installed
desktop files. You might want to suggest / recommend it.

- Kontact / KMail / KDEPIM
While Kontact / KMail crypto works without Kleopatra it should
be installed with KMail as it provides Crypto Configuration GUI.
It also provides Certificate Details. This should probably be
recommended and part of a kdepim meta package.

- GnuPG itself
GnuPG can, of course, be used without Kleopatra. In GUI
environments you might want to weakly suggest Kleopatra as
a GUI for GnuPG (especially GpgSM)
