How to import an OpenPGP key

Asked by William F Hammond on 2018-04-15

The latest answer for this topic is from October 2014.

The Launchpad instructions found in trying to sign code of conduct lead to a menu that does not exist in xenial.

I found a similar menu elsewhere in xenial, but the program it loaded did not match the instructions well enough for me to proceed.

So in Xenial (16.04.4 LTS) how do I obtain a suitable fingerprint for signing the code of conduct?

Have you tried teh following?

gpg --list-keys --fingerprint
gpg --check-sigs --fingerprint

Is your key listed there?
If so try:
gpg --export -a <KEY-ID>
e.g. gpg --export -a C54F8516

That's it.

Exactly what instructions were you following? We should certainly update those, but will need more specific information about what you tried and what didn't work.
