GPGPreferences Pref Pane does not open on Leopard (10.5.8)

Reported by Mel Riffe | July 28th, 2011 @ 03:43 AM | in 0.9 (closed)

I downloaded GPGTools Installer Version 2011.07.11 today (27 July 2011) and restarted my MacBook, running Mac OS X Leopard (10.5.8). The GPGTools Preference Pane does not open, stating in a "Preferences Error" dialog: Could not load GPGTools preference pane.

Consulting Console, I found the following entries:

7/27/11 9:40:22 PM System Preferences[1639] Error loading /Users/mriffe/Library/PreferencePanes/GPGTools.prefPane/Contents/MacOS/GPGTools: dlopen(/Users/mriffe/Library/PreferencePanes/GPGTools.prefPane/Contents/MacOS/GPGTools, 265): no suitable image found. Did find:
/Users/mriffe/Library/PreferencePanes/GPGTools.prefPane/Contents/MacOS/GPGTools: unknown required load command 0x80000022

7/27/11 9:40:22 PM System Preferences[1639] [NSPrefPaneBundle instantiatePrefPaneObject] (/Users/mriffe/Library/PreferencePanes/GPGTools.prefPane): principalClass is nil.

FYI: GPG Keychain Access installed successfully as well as the command-line utility gpg (I'm assuming it's MacGPG2)

What other information can I share to help debug the problem?

    Do you use an Intel or PPC Mac?

    I have an Intel MacBook; MacBook2,1 is the model identifier from System Profiler.

    Unfortunately none of our "core developers/maintainers" is using Leopard anymore and starting with Lion it's getting harder to support 10 X 10.5 (in particular PPC binaries).

    Here we need (more) support of users/developers running Leopard to provide patches or compiled binaries.

    In this case: GPGTools_Preferences is not compiled for 10.5 since it depends on Libmacgpg that is OS X >= 10.6 only.

    GPGPreferences is based on Libmacgpg and it has no support for 10.5
