The c't signed your public key. By this they certify that your public 
key really belongs to a person which is called like you. Now you simply 
have to import the key you received from the c't. This will add the c't 
key certification signature to your public key. And as you already 
signed the c't key it should work then. BTW, as you also have your 
secret key there shouldn't be a warning that your key is not signed by 
a trusted CA because it's automatically ultimately trusted. Maybe the 
frontend you are using has a bug and shows a wrong message?
