Adding repository - gpg key error solved

Postby Handyman on Sat Oct 04, 2008 1:30 am

I added the google repository, to install the newest Picasa version.

Google provides a signing key, but how do I add it into Mint? I downloaded the key and double-clicked on it. Mint said it was imported.

I still get an error in synaptic: "The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available..."

If I ignore the error, the (new) Picasa package doesn't show up in synaptic.

Where do I go from here? Thanks.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

To import a key open up a terminal and
Code: Select all
wget -q http://address_to_your_key.key -O- | sudo apt-key add - && sudo apt-get update

Note that the address has a .key at the end

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
