Aha, so that is cooled?
Okay, maybe I wasn't clear. I will extend my advise. Shut up. Cool Down.
Cool Down more. Start writing. If your write yourself into rage again,
go back to cooling and DON'T hit the send button.

1. I'm offended because you act like a little kid and miss judge the
work of others, just because you have a small problem with a part of the
work. And if that is not enough you blame others just because the most
likely cause for the problems you are having is YOU.
2. I'm offended because you state your little narrow view of the world
3. I'm offended that you are to lazy to give a detailed report of what
commands you use, what the output is. What messages you get. No chance
for anyone to reproduce the problem. Just demands from you, negating all
the support and help people tried to give you. But I have not seen a
single sign, that you thought about, what you can do, so it easier for
others to help.
So please don't give me that crap with "how people express themselves".
And I hope point 3 is close enough to the real issue for you.
If you get till here, I hope the above part is from it's "tune" close
enough to how you communicate, so you get an impression how your mails
appear to others. Now comes a little more productive part. Here are some
questions which might get you on track:
People told you that c/p the .gnupg directory is the easiest solution
and worked for them.
Your wrote you used import/export commands. Why that and not the c/p
Which keys did you want to export/import via command line? Just your
And please take above point 3 into consideration. Without a detailed
step by step instruction (with commands, ...) which leads to the
problem at least I am out.
I can just tell you that I just successfully created a private key,
exported it, imported it with an outdated (portable) gnupg version and
used it with no problems.
