(ah, there you have me. I cannot look at your screen. :-))
I trust you've solved your problem by now, if not:
$ gpg --list-keys
you should see which key you're after by looking at the 3rd (space-separated)
field, the date of creation. its first field should read 'pub'(lic). the
second field is a slash separated compound, use the number after the slash to:
$ gpg --export theNumber > the_file_to_use_on_github
never needed to do this, so check out the export comments re '-armor' option and
fwiw, TOK's ""SSH keypair setup for GitHub" link looks v good. had not known
you can use ssh keys too, recommend you switch from 'gpg' to 'ssh' at some point
(easier to use + manage).
