To export, use:
gpg --armor --export > public.asc
gpg --armor --export-secret-key > private.asc

To import, use:
gpg --import public.asc
gpg --allow-secret-key-import private.asc

Then use edit key to set them as fully trusted

I have not found in the documentation a way to save my key pair in order to
use it on another computer. Do I have just to copy the files from my .gnupg
directory ?
