It all works on Debian - Fedora-16 64-bit well no and LUbuntu LXDE 64-bit no. And it's not
LXDE - LUbuntu - is it a kernel issue? Maybe I could never find out. Considering that
Kleopatra Kgpg GPA Thunderbird Enigmail ALL Failed - it points to a kernel issue.

As happens on this list when people point out that something's not working - those with very
limited intelligence start bleating as if we are completely ignorant of what we do.

Anyway, I keep away from Fedora - a dodgy system as now I keep well away from LUbuntu
64-bit. Not all Linux Distros work. Not all Linux applications work. This is a fact of life.
