Dunno what that's doing there.  You're right, it should be gpg.conf.

The good news is most of your OS X skills will apply here.
 OS X 10.4 and 10.5 both use a program called 'bash' to provide a
command line.  So does Ubuntu.  Prior to 10.4, OS X used tcsh instead of
bash; if you're more comfortable with 10.0-10.3 behavior, talk to me
off-list and we can get Ubuntu set up with tcsh.

I'd suggest doing 'gedit ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf &' and just editing it that
way.  Gedit is the standard GNOME editor and should be much friendlier
than using nano.
