My version of gpg is 2.2.27.

Do you normally work as root?

still, I'd have expected a comparable output.

no.  I had to log in because root is the only account with a '~/.gnupg/' (for OS
updates), it's 'ssh' for everything (and everyone) else.

hi,

(sorry, just occurred to me)

have you checked whether there are other 'pubring.{kbx,gpg}' files anywhere?
thinking KDE might store stuff in places other than just your user's home.  I'd
use 'locate(1)' though 'find(1)' will do.


regards, jr.

OK, I created an SSH key and followed GitHub's instructions for adding
it to my ssh-agent, re-created the remote origin reference on my local
repo, and tried to push again.  Git-Cola *still* asked for the damn
expired GPG key.

I guess I'll have to dig out the instructions on how to push from the
CLI, and see if that works.  But like I said before, I cannot remember
these commands from one moment to the next; but I do remember that if I
forget a step, or if I omit or get one of the myriad command line
switches wrong, none of it will work.

Is my workflow getting easier yet?

The push worked from the CLI.  Next is to find out why Git-Cola is still stuck
in the past.

Good.

Do you know what key (GPG or SSH) was being used when it worked from the command
line ?

If it was not the SSH key; did you paste the contents of the id_rsa.pub file
into the key field at this page:

https://github.com/settings/ssh/new

Btw.: I had to google Git-Cola to find out what it is. I wasn't aware that you
use it. I haven't used such GUI tools myself, just the git tools on the command
line and the web interface at github.com.

It was SSH.

Fortunately, Git-Cola and the CLI work well together.  I can switch back
and forth at any time, and the Git repos maintain their integrity.
