Using keys in Windows ans Linux

export both your public and secret keys (perhaps in two passes)

On windows:

gpg --output my_public.key --export my-key-id 
gpg --output my_secret.key --export-secret-key my-key-id

On Linux (after gpg all set up):

gpg --allow-secret-key-import --import my_*.key

Note:  Not sure which version of GnuPG you have.  My man pages state:

                 This  is an obsolete option and is not used anywhere.

Be sure you use BINARY when you ftp the files from Windows to Linux.

I'm currently using Gnupg running on a Windows PC. Now I'd like to use 
my keys on my Linux notebook.

How can I import my secret keys to GnuPG in Linux???

thanks a lot
