if no keys are found for a search string we should not show an empty key list but an informative message

Reported by steve | May 4th, 2016 @ 06:21 PM | in 1.4 (closed)


search for a string which is not in your keyring.


Empty window on GPG Keychain.


Show info message. This can especially be a problem (or at least confusing) if the user forgets to disable "Show secret keys" when doing a search.


"The search for "search_string" in your local keyring turned up no results."

when "show secret keys only" option is enabled, instead show:

"The search for "search_string" in your local keyring turned up no results. You may want to disable the option to "Show secret keys only" to expand the search results."
