Hello All,

   Need some help....

I have done the following things already:

1. downloaded sylpheed.0.8.5
2. downloaded and compiled and installed gpgme (latest)
3. compiled and installed sylpheed in the follow manner:

cd ~/downloads/sylpheed.0.8.5
./configure --enable-gpgme  # the output says that GPGME is 'enabled'.
make          # no errors
make install  # no errors

4. then I run sylpheed from command line and it pops up ok, and I
  some things, but there are no buttons for encrypting, signing,
  or decrypting email.  Am i doing something wrong?  Do i need a later
  version of sylpheed?

(I already have my public and secret keys on the rings at:
