pinentry not accepting ´ character

Reported by steve | September 18th, 2016 @ 10:03 AM | in 2.0.30_2016.07 (closed)


  1. create a key and for password use something that has ´ in it e.g. é
  2. encrypt a textsnippet with that key
  3. decrypt


pinentry will not accept the keypress ´. Interestingly though it will accept the same key in combination with Shift which results in `.


´ key press should be accepted like any other key.

This situation means, users with ´or á, é etc in their password will have to use clumsy workarounds. We should fix this soon. The video doesn't really show it, when pressing ´ there's no keypress detected at all which is why screen capturing shows nothing at the time ´ was pressed.
