Since eid-mw now contains the middleware, the viewer and the Firefox extension, the eid-viewer package is now deprecated. eid-viewer has been merged into this package.

This package is making use of PGP signatures. Please make sure you understand that principle before filling a request: A GPG public key needs to be imported first, typically with a command like:

gpg --recv-key 824A5E0010A04D46

Receiving GPG keys might fail with the following error message: gpg: keyserver receive failed: Connection refused. If this happens, just check your DNS or use another one.

Update: 2017-03-29 We are now using the build server. As explained in the PKGBUILD file, only the binary files hosted on the dist server are signed, the source files are not in order to avoid confusion with less tech-savvy sysadmins. For security-conscious users like us, we need to use the build server instead. This is why it has been decided, this PKGBUILD won't use the dist server anymore, as long the build server remains publicly available. Using the build server also fixes issues with curl user-agent in the process.

Solved - didn't work via manjaro/pamac but via makepkg it installed. Thanks to @wget for the help.

@delaerep Sorry to hear that. I have just tested on a bare ArchLinux install and I wasn't able to reproduce. See for yourself: The key is properly added with the same warnings as you get and the compilation process continues without issues. I'm afraid the issue is on your side. Feel free to reach us on IRC if you want to debug further your issue. Thanks!

@wget @niels1995 I still have the same error. As I already did add the gpg key. gpg gives me the following : gpg --recv-key 824A5E0010A04D46 gpg: key 824A5E0010A04D46: 2 signatures not checked due to missing keys gpg: key 824A5E0010A04D46: public key "Belgian eID Automatic Signing Key (continuous builds)" imported gpg: no ultimately trusted keys found gpg: Total number processed: 1 gpg: imported: 1 Thanks for looking into my problem.

@niels1995, thanks for having answered the question asked in the comment. Since that kind of question is quite common, I added a note about it in the pinned comment.

You have to add the public key manually. Just type this in the terminal:.

gpg --recv-key 824A5E0010A04D46

This will add the key to trusted sources. After this, you can install the package.

Good luck, Niels

Please, I,m desperate on how to install this package, as I need it.

delaerep commented on 2018-10-22 16:34

I still can't install, always have the same error message : ==> Signatuur bronbestand verifiëren met gpg... eid-mw-4.4.8-v4.4.8.tar.gz ... MISLUKT (onbekende publieke sleutel 824A5E0010A04D46) ==> FOUT: Een of meer PGP signaturen konden niet geverifieerd worden! In the package build In the PKGBUILD is mentioned the change DNS to a public one, can somebody tell me one that works. Thanks

wget commented on 2018-10-20 11:03

@delaerep: Because we are using the continuous integration server and not the distribution one. Please read comments in the PKGBUILD file for details. Won't change.

The gpg key seems wrong. On the eid-belgium site the key is : B37D 9040 098C 3DEE E00F 6D08 A357 43EA 6773 D225 can you fix this. Thanks

@olive it doesn't appear automatically in Firefox, but the extension is actually installed on the system when you install this package.

You should find it in /usr/share/mozilla/extensions/ and install the xpi manually.

But now you said it, I'm wondering whether I'll still ship the extension bundled for the next release.
