Well... could it be that the key is lacking a self-signature? Normally you sign your own key, so the user-information is safe. gpg should not complain about importing public keys otherwise... Also you might want to look at the --always-trust option or you could edit the key preferences (gpg --edit-key id) to assign a trust level. hth, Georg --=20 USER, n.: The word computer professionals use when they mean "idiot". --8NvZYKFJsRX2Djef Content-Type: application/pgp-signature Content-Disposition: inline -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.0.4 (GNU/Linux) Comment: For info see iD8DBQE6tpHgMhml2MWI6O0RAuDrAJ9MJMcSlv82bAQHpkHnAYQ6iKogyACgtMaV 93JpHVwO44eY0GHJ2abrHhU= =6rAN -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- --8NvZYKFJsRX2Djef--
