Bug Description

OS: LinuxMint 13 'Maya'
Desktop: KDE 4.8.5 / Qt 4.8.1
Application: KGpg 2.7.4

At first run KGpg fails to start, reporting a non-existant .gnupg (sub)directory.
This happens persistently and irrevocably.
It was already filed as Bug 290221 with bugs.kde.org on 2011-12-31.

It turns out the problem is in the default kgpgrc file which is installed by LinuxMint, i.c.:
/usr/share/mintkde-default-settings/kde4-profile/default/share/config/kgpgrc

From the following section KGpg tries to distill a full path to a file, but only gets a path to a directory:
    [GPG Settings]
    Groups=
    gpg_config_path=$HOME/.gnupg

Therefore the last line should be adapted to:
    gpg_config_path=$HOME/.gnupg/gpg.conf

That will make KGpg's first run really run - and consequently solve this wee bug.

If I should report this particular bug elsewhere, please let me know.
