Bug Description

Binary package hint: libqca2-plugin-ossl

Using the version of libqca2-plugins-ossl from jaunty will cause Koffice (both version and 2.0.0) to fail to open encrypted odf documents with an error about missing hash funtions.

After updating libqca2-plugin-ossl to the latest version ( 2.0.0-beta3 ) availible upstream ( http://delta.affinix.com/qca/ ) it works just fine.
I've uploaded the debs to my ppa ( https://launchpad.net/~jon-severinsson/+archive/ppa ) if anyone else wants to test.

Even with a more recent qca2-plugins-ossl version that supports the required hash functions, kword is not able to open encrypted odf files.

As of today, kspread from both lucid and lucid-backports can open an encrypted ods files using libqca2-plugin-ossl from my PPA. I have previously used kspread from jaunty and karmic to open encrypted ods files using libqca2-plugin-ossl from my PPA.

Since lucid I get a second password prompt which I must cancel to get to the document, but it still works.

I don't have a maverick or natty install to test, nor do I have any encrypted odt files to test with kword.
