Creating your OpenPGP keys with gpg command
- Open a terminal and type:
- GPG will now ask you a number of questions about the type of key you want to generate. follow the steps below to select the default option each time.
- Check that your key has been generated by typing gpg --list-keys and, if successful. pub 1024D/12345678 -> this is the important number
- Launchpad doesn't store your key directly, so you need to export your public key to a key server, such as keyserver.ubuntu.com: If successful, GPG will display a message similar to:
Add OpenPGP key to Launchpad
- Launchpad identifies your OpenPGP key by its fingerprint. In your terminal, you can ask GPG for your key's fingerprint by typing: GPG will display a message similar to:
- Visit your OpenPGP key page at https://launchpad.net/people/+me/+editpgpkeys
- Paste the fingerprint that you copied in step 1 into the Fingerprint text-box, then click the Import Key button. Launchpad will use the fingerprint to check the Ubuntu key server for your key and, if successful, send you an encrypted email asking you to confirm the key import. (Note : this is a brief ... from launchpad process..... both process take a while so just take your time...)
