I have been trying to add a GPG key created on the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) platform. I have created keys as per these instructions with both GPGv1 and GPGv2. They keys are created perfectly fine but I cant add them to GitHub. When I try to add a new GPG key as instructed in this help article I keep getting an error informing me that there was an "error doing that" and when the page reloads after save, they key hasnt been added.
I have a working GPG key that I added from my Mac but thats obviously just for use on that machine. However, I also use WSL, Windows 10 and Debian 8 server. I need to be able to use my GPG signature on all systems.
Can anyone offer any help. How do I add GPG keys from WSL and Windows 10?
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
One thought crossed my mind. Can I use the same email address on multiple GPG keys? Come to think of it, maybe not. I will try changing the email and doing it again.
This has not been solved. It had to do with the way Win10 pastes stuff. To fix this I had to use pastebin, paste into their then correct the formatting - copy as plain text and then paste as plain text into the field in Github settings for adding a new GPG key.
