Currently it is not possible to import PGP keys using Gnome Seahorse likely because there is no package called pinentry-gnome3 (it's also not in AUR), that other distributions have, like here for Debian:

So the problem is, when selecting a PGP key to be imported, it first shows the key data, but importing fails without any error message as the box for entering the passphrase never comes up. Importing a key in console works.

Additional info:

Tested with extra/seahorse 1:3.34-1

Steps to reproduce:

Try to import a PGP key.
This task depends upon

@arojas, already checked, the pinentry-gnome3 binary is present, so this was a wrong assumption. It's not working as described nonetheless, so this may be an upstream issue instead.
