First line of both and (located @ /usr/share/gdecrypt) should be changed from:

#!/usr/bin/env python2.5


#!/usr/bin/env python2.6

It could help people with hal package installed. However hal is deprecated in Ubuntu 10.04.

So is this really the correct place for this bug to be posted or should it be directly under the project "GDecrypt". Since the current development branch is the last release branch and the same as this Ubuntu package.

By the way Inox's change resolves the issue, I am working to see if we can get the current release updated for Ubuntu 10.04+.

#!/usr/bin/env python2.5
Changed to:
#!/usr/bin/env python2.6

In "ubuntu-proposed" I don't see any update for gdecrypt.

I've patched manually the problem editing the file /usr/share/gdecrypt/ and changing the first line:

#!/usr/bin/env python2.5

#!/usr/bin/env python2

That's because it was fixed in Maverick, not Ubuntu. I've uploaded to lucid-proposed now. It's pending Ubuntu SRU team verification, which will be announced here.

Accepted gdecrypt into lucid-proposed, the package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!

SRU verification for Lucid:
I have reproduced the problem with gdecrypt in lucid and have verified that the version of gdecrypt in -proposed fixes the issue.
