2 questions.

Do other euca-xxx commands time-out as well?

Is there a second file named mykey.priv in the ~/.euca subdirectory?

If the install went without error, I suspect the problem is sourcing eucarc

but there is no sub directory in that location of ~/.euca..is it possible to run an instance through web browser.

You didn't make Step 5 and Step 7 of this tutorial

~/.euca is a hidden sub-directory.

If, from your home directory, the command
ls -A
does not show the sub-directory named '.euca', your problem does concern your install.

I suppose that somebody who want to install uec should know that .euca is a hidden directory.:D
