Currently, there is no good documentation stating how to use SSL with Quassel to authenticate into a server, for example when logging on to the OFTC server. Following the documentation on the OFTC's website didn't help, and chatting with an OFTC operator didn't solve anything either. I'm on macOS with Quassel Mono.

Apologies, using 0.14 NOT 0.13.1 as shown above.

Please ignore above, and apologies for sounding like a rant. The big issue here is that the file dialog isn't showing up, which impacts file loading and hence the ability to use my certificate and key. I'm using Quassel Monolithic Client 0.14 on MacOS 12.5.1, with the official binary from The QT version is 5.15.2. Here are the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Click into preferences
  2. Click into 'Identities' under 'IRC'
  3. Click 'Advanced'
  4. Click either of the 'Load' buttons, under 'Use SSL Key' and 'Use SSL Certificate' respectively.

The corresponding log is attached, note that the username has been edited out for security purposes.

works for me in quassel monolithic 0.13.1 on debian: the load buttons open a file browser dialog. looks like this issue is probably mac specific, or introduced in the later version.

Did you have a fix on this issue? Challenging a relative issue yet no response from anyone and couldn't see this point taking a gander at in google.

Hi there! I just used the automatic NickServ login, but technically CertFP still doesn't work.
