Issue entering ssh key in account

I am sure this is a stupid question, but at this point I am tired of banging my head against this wall.

Here what I have done...

Following the steps on the wiki at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AU … guidelines

I created ~/.ssh/config with settings as outlined.

I generated a new key pair with ssh-keygen -f ~/.ssh/aur

I pasted the contents of aur.pub into the ssh public key field.

Get the error "The PGP key fingerprint is invalid."

Re: Issue entering ssh key in account

Re: Issue entering ssh key in account

A common error is (or at least used to be) that including the email/identity at the end of the public key resulted in this error.  All that should be pasted into the field on the AUR website is "ssh-rsa BASE64STRING"

EDIT: oops, see the above post.

Re: Issue entering ssh key in account

Thank you, that was part of the problem. I also realized that Firefox was trying to fill the PGP field with my email address. I knew it was something obvious I was missing, but once you stare at the same screen for awhile, it all just starts hazing over.

Thanks again.
