eBox public key???

Postposted on Wed Feb 25, 2009 4:00 pm

I had synaptic install OpenVPN and the eBox plug-in for it. I thought things were good until I noticed the eBox Control Center is not an option. I went to eBox's website and added the repository to the packages manager.

I now get an error that the public keys cannot be found. Is there anyone here that uses eBox on Ubuntu 8.10 that would know where/how I can get said public keys downloaded/installed???????

Thanks.

https://launchpad.net/~ebox/+archive/ppa has a link with the key and also installation instructions for the key.

Thanks.

I went there last night and followed everything they said to do, and no matter what I type in the terminal, I still get an error about a missing public key. I'll do it again when I get home later and post the exact error message. Hopefully if I can get this fixed, the control center becomes an installable package, cause it doesn't show up right now.

If you don't have the key, it should still install in terms of "apt-get install", just give you a warning about unknown key.

I would open a terminal and do
Code: Select all
sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 274b5881e00011fb79e2eae15f99a088342d17ac
to import the key. Then
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update
should check the repositories and let you know if the key is working.

THank You sir!!! That worked wonderfully. . . . .at least I am not getting any error messages.

I still have to figure out how to use the program properly, like accessing the web interface and finding out exactly what my machine's IP address is - but I'll get there (I think).
