Claws Mail - how to decrypt mail (PGP) ?

It says that it supports GNUPG out of the box but whenever I receive an encrypted email it just says "bad passphrase" without even asking me for it. Of course I can't find anything on it. What's up with that?

Okay, I've figured it out. You need the pinentry package from here http://slackware.cs.utah.edu/pub/slackw ... 6_64-1.txz, since the Salix version wrongly lists qt as a dependency (and I didn't want to waste 300 MB space - remember, no clutter allowed!).
