    unable to import the public keys in QGIS

    Hi folks

    when I try to import the public keys

    gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv 997D3880
    gpg --export --armor 997D3880 | sudo apt-key add -

    (I don't use "sudo" in front of gpg)

    for QGIS I get those message:

    gpg: WARNING: unsafe permissions on configuration file "/home/giacomo/.gnupg/gpg.conf"
    gpg: external program calls are disabled due to unsafe options file permissions
    gpg: error communicating with the server key: general error
    gpg: keyserver receive from failed: general error


    Instead, if I try wit

    sudo gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv 997D3880
    sudo gpg --export --armor 997D3880 | sudo apt-key add -

    I get

    gpg: WARNING: unsafe ownership on configuration file, "/home/giacomo/.gnupg/gpg.conf"
    gpg: external program calls are disabled due to unsafe options file permissions
    gpg: error communicating with the server key: general error
    gpg: keyserver receive from failed: general error

    if I try with

    ls -la /home/giacomo/.gnupg/gpg.conf

    I get

    -rw------- 1 giacomo giacomo 9398 ott 17 2012 /home/giacomo/.gnupg/gpg.conf

    Waiting for your help

    Thank you very much
    Giacomo
