Unable to use my PPA

Asked by dentaku65 on 2013-10-11

Hi,

I'm really stuck with this error on building packages for my PPA issuing command
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -k24FD16F7

Got 'secret key not available':
gpg: skipped "24FD16F7": secret key not available
gpg: [stdin]: clearsign failed: secret key not available

My exports are fine:
export GPGKEY=24FD16F7
export DEBFULLNAME='dentaku65 (dentaku for ubuntu)'
export DEBEMAIL=snip@mail

gpg --list-keys:
pub 768D/24FD16F7 2010-01-06
uid dentaku65 (dentaku for ubuntu) <snip@mail>

Open a tread on ubuntu forums
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2172946

How can recover secret key?

All the best
