(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
sending keys.

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).


regards, jr.
