I must be missing something...
I have downloaded Werner Kochs public key
(http://www.gnupg.org/gnupg-sigkey.html), i have imported it successfully. I
want to send an encrypted file to him (foo.txt).
I give :
gpg -r firstname.lastname@example.org -e foo.txt
and i get :
gpg: No key for user ID
gpg: email@example.com: skipped: public key not found
gpg: opsys.cc: encryption failed: public key not found
gpg -r 57548DCD -e foo.txt
where 5754... is the ID of Werner and i get :
gpg: 57548DCD: skipped: unusable pubkey algorithm
gpg: opsys.cc: encryption failed: unusable pubkey algorithm
I have gpg 1.0.4
What am i doing wrong?
Do i need to first sign werners public key before encrypting to it?
