How to Retrieve Keyids [SOLVED]

Hi everyone, how do you retrieve keyids? I looked at the key's part of the arch wiki but I can't figure it out. It says to use  pacman-key -r <keyid> .But that's a bit of a problem since I don't know what the keyid is and how to find out what it is.

Re: How to Retrieve Keyids [SOLVED]

For what?  You only need to add a key if you are trying to add a signed repository.  For instance, take a look at graysky's repo-ck wiki page here.

So unless you know what it is you want to add and what for, this feature is of no use to you.

I want to install Clamav.But I get the following errors.So I want to add Gaetan Bisson's KeyID to the keyring so I can install Clamav.

error: clamav: signature from "Gaetan Bisson <gaetan.bisson@normalesup.org>" is unknown trust
error: failed to commit transaction (invalid or corrupted package (PGP signature))
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

Re: How to Retrieve Keyids [SOLVED]

I think maybe yuo need to use pacman-key to refresh the keys.

Edit: Do this

# pacman-key --refresh-keys 

The only reason why I can think of why you wouldn't have a good key is that your installation is not up to date.  Have you updated recently?

Edit2: BTW, when I refresh my keys, I get this:

gpg: key 00F0D0F0: "Gaetan Bisson <gaetan.bisson@normalesup.org>" not changed

So if I have no change, I am not sure why you would if your installation is up to date.

Yes, I updated my system recently. I just ran pacman-key --refresh-keys and it's still giving me the same errors.

Really? The Common Problems thread has an entry (hint #3), for your exact issue:

Re: How to Retrieve Keyids [SOLVED]

You sure it's corrupted and doesn't have anything to do with the unknown trust error?

Re: How to Retrieve Keyids [SOLVED]

you have to mark it solved.... by editing your first post in the thread and appending [SOLVED] in the thread title.

This would likely not have been a issue had this not been an Archbang installation.
