I have the launchpad the ppa and the project configured but when I try to quickly submitubuntu it aborts. I tried to create the Debian package with quickly package --extras and it worked and with the 'quickly package' it worked too, I don't understand...

This is my submission to the app showdown...

The error:

glink@glink:~/mydev/SRC/src-install$ quickly submitubuntu 
Obter definições do Launchpad
bzr: ERROR: The user fernandofreamunde has not registered any SSH keys with Launchpad.

Launchpad connection is ok
.............Ubuntu packaging created in debian/
...ERROR: quickly can't release: can't push to launchpad.
ERRO: O comando submitubuntu falhou

You need to create a SSH key and upload it into Launchpad.


Step 1: Install OpenSSH. On Ubuntu, you can install OpenSSH by opening your terminal and typing:

sudo apt-get install openssh-client 

Step 2: Once OpenSSH is installed, stay in the terminal and type:

ssh-keygen -t rsa

Step 3: When prompted, press Enter to accept the default file name for your key.

Step 4: Next, enter then confirm a password to protect your SSH key. Your key pair is stored in ~/.ssh/ as (public key) and id_rsa (private key)

Now you need to upload the public portion of your SSH key to Launchpad.
