    Launchpad: signing the Ubuntu Code of Conduct; could be easier.

    New to Linux and trying to sign to be part of the bug team as I feel it will help me learn the internals and make me a better end user.

    I have made it as far as:

    1. In a terminal, run the command:
      gpg --clearsign UbuntuCodeofConduct-1.1.txt
      (or whatever filename you gave to the code). This will create a file with a name like UbuntuCodeofConduct-1.1.txt.asc.
    2. Open that new file, and copy and paste its contents into this box. Then click “Continue”.

    I have changed the file type to the .asc and have tried to copy and paste yet I get this error:


    There is 1 error.
    (7, 58, u'No data')


    Any help would be much appreciated!

    This may help and you may need to install Inigmail for Thunderbird if I remember correctly for any encoded email in the future .http://www.wikihow.com/Sign-the-Ubuntu-Code-of-Conduct

    Thank you for your reply - I already had thunderbird and inigmail installed for the reasons you stated.

    My issue remains the same - when I cut and paste the document I get the error above.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    I have changed the file type to the .asc and have tried to copy and paste yet I get this error:
    You shouldn't be doing that.

    Running

    Code:
    gpg --clearsign UbuntuCodeofConduct-1.1.txt
    should leave you with both

    UbuntuCodeofConduct-1.1.txt
    UbuntuCodeofConduct-1.1.txt.asc

    Then open the UbuntuCodeofConduct-1.1.txt.asc file and copy paste that.

    I may be having a similar problem;

    When I try to open the UbuntuCodeofConduct-2.0.txt.asc I get an error message telling me that

    "There is no application installed for PGP/MIME-encrypted message header files.
    Do you want to search for an application to open this file?"

    I searched for an application like it said and installed a plugin for seahorse that it suggested. Now when I try to open the file I get an error message reading "No data"

    Sorry if this is the wrong place for this.
