no valid OpenPGP data found in Karmic

Asked by bd on 2010-03-17

Hi there,

I am trying to install RabbitVCS via PPA by doing the following:

1. sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/rabbitvcs/ppa/ubuntu karmic main' >> /etc/apt/sources.list"
2. sudo apt-key adv --keyserver pool.sks-keyservers.net --recv-keys 34EF4A35

But, I am getting the "no valid OpenPGP data found" like below:

gpg --keyserver pool.sks-keyservers.net --recv-keys 34EF4A35
gpg: requesting key 34EF4A35 from hkp server pool.sks-keyservers.net
gpgkeys: HTTP fetch error 56: Failure when receiving data from the peer
gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.
gpg: Total number processed: 0

---

Finally, I try to install it manually by downloading all the .deb packagesf or Karmic. The whole installation seems to be completed fine, but I don't see any ICON to launch rabbitvcs. The only way I can access rabbitvcs is by typing "rabbitvcs" in the cmd line.

Thanks,
-BD

I don't know about the OpenPGP problem. Make sure you don't have a firewall blocking the port that is usually used for PGP data (sorry, but I don't know the details off the top of my head).

For the second point, RabbitVCS is not technically an application but an extension. It will appear in the context menu for Nautilus or Thunar, and in wherever gedit puts its plugin menus.

Maybe you're behind a firewall.
Try:

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys 34EF4A35
