I'm in the process of adding my OpenPGP key to Launchpad and I just uploaded it to Ubuntu's keyserver. Now I can only continue once the key is available through the keyserver. Is there a way to check if that's already the case?

Command line way:

  • Run:

    gpg --keyserver hkp:// --search-key ''

Graphical way:

  • Run seahorse (Passwords and Encryption Keys), hit the Find Remote Keys... button, enter your key ID in the search field, and finally only select the Ubuntu keyserver:
