Support / Re: ImportError: No module named wx
« Last post by Mike on Today at 01:30:44 am »
You don't have wx installed. I assume this is a Linux environment. Please install the prerequisites.
Depends: python-enchant (>= 1.6),python-twisted (>= 14.0),python-wxgtk3.0 (>= 3.0.1.1),python-cryptography (>= 0.6),gnupg (>= 1.4.16)

Support / ImportError: No module named wx
« Last post by badgeleyr on June 01, 2017, 09:23:54 am »
I am following the directions in the slide show from the home page and when I go to click on the icon to start the program I get no response.  I clicked on the icon properties and entered the CMD in the terminal and this is what I get:

"rl-02@RL02 ~ $ /usr/bin/confidantmail
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/confidantmail/config_chooser.py", line 16, in <module>
    import wx
ImportError: No module named wx"

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks for your time in advance!

Support / Re: no key generation

Sorry for the late reply. I suspect you don't have enough entropy. Linux is bad at that; I see this in my VMs when I test. Generate some I/O while it's hung.

Support / no key generation
« Last post by razpian on May 09, 2017, 10:42:31 am »
My Linux machine will not generate a key for installation.  I am running Ubuntu 16.04 / mint 18.  It installs, opens and lets me add an account but when I get to the key generation point it stalls and locks up.  I installed on a Win 7 machine without any problems.  Any pointers?

General Discussion / User interface and robustness improvements in 0.37 and 0.36
« Last post by Mike on February 02, 2017, 01:07:57 am »
Lately I have been working on uptime and robustness, as well as improving the UI. Some recent changes:

Right click New Message to go right to the Address Book - an often requested feature.
List sorts are now case insensitive.
Windows Delete key fixed (worked around a WxPython bug)
Automatic corrupted block repair.
Prevent insertion of overly-large image or invalid image.
Image picker fixed in Linux variants that previously had problems.
Detection of attachment file deleted between file selection and message send.
Mac icon added.

Server robustness improvement:
New server self-test feature, and cms_kad.py keepalive system - each server monitors itself and its partner, automatically restarts down server, prunes full disk, alerts the admin if anything is wrong.

Is there an official list of public servers?
I can only find the two test servers and haven't been able to find anymore...

General Discussion / Portable USB version

Is there a way to make the Windows version of confidant mail portable on a USB flash disk?
I understand the risks of doing this, but I would like to have a portable version to run off a flash disk.
The intention is to use/store it in an encrypted container on a flash disk, for use when not at home or computer with me.

General Discussion / Re: SMTP notification added, and new version coming out

For the extraneous alert, download 0.337. It's fixed.

Is this a client-side fix or a server-side fix? I am not currently running/testing a CM server.

For alerts in Entangled mode:

Anyone using entangled mode is probably pretty deep undercover

Or simply does not wish to rely on a server operator and is not in a position to run their own. Such users would help to provide cover traffic.

deep undercover and should not be receiving SMTP email at all. He should be checking CM via Tor and a VPN. There's not a good way to do it.

What's the modern equivalent of posting an encrypted message via TOR and anonymous remailers to alt.anonymous.messages?
