Problem signing packages

Um... if you're in Ubuntu you could try to install Seahorse or KPGP in KDE.
They help you manage your GPG keys easier (at least Seahorse).

Also on this page:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GnuPrivacyGuardHowtothey recommend
adding a line in your .bashrc file like so:

export GPGKEY=ABCDEFGH

Which is supposed to help programs that want to access your key to find it.

Finally, the use-agent option in the conf file uncommented itself for me
too... I thought I got a gpg update since edgy's been updating every day.
Maybe a more experienced user can help us on this if that's not the case.

- Regards,
Richard
