    Lightbulb Seahorse Personal Key Import from old Home Folder

    Hi,

    last week I decided to not just run dist-upgrade, but give the Lynx a completely fresh install. Before that I've only copied my home folder to an external hard-drive.

    Now that I'm on Ubuntu 10.04 I have no clue how to import my old personal key and the passwords from the backup (my old home folder).

    Does anyone have an idea?
    Thanks for your help!

    Copying ~/.gnupg ~/.ssh and ~/.gnome2/keyrings from your backup to your home directory should do the trick.

    Had not saved my .gnome2/keyrings. Copying .gnupg and .ssh. Hope it works.
