moving gpg to another PC

I installed GPG on a linux machine some time ago, I've now moved my
home stuff to another machine (I still have the old one).

I want to move my GPG stuff to the new machine.

I saw a message in March that suggested that I would just have to
copy the .gnupg directory to the new machine, I've tried that but it
doesn't seem to work.

The problem is that the key ids change as soon as the directory is
copied. This means that the new machine can't decrypt stuff sent with
the private key created on the old machine.

Can anybody help?
