I have tried searching previous questions for answers to my question but all of the answers that have been suggested previously haven't worked for me.
I am trying to connect to a linode (running ubuntu 12.04 LTS) from my local machine (also running ubnutu 12.04 LTS)
I have create a private and public key on my local machine and copied my public key to my linode's authorized_keys file. However whenever I try to ssh to my linode I get the error message "Permission denied (publickey).
Its not a problem with how ssh is set up on my linode because I can ssh to it from my Windows machine using key authentication.
In my .ssh directory on my local ubuntu machine I have my id_rsa and id_rsa.pub files. Do I need to create an authorized_keys file on my local machine?
EDIT: This is what I get when I run ssh -vvv -i id_rsa [youruser]@[yourLinode]
debug3: authmethod_lookup publickey debug3: remaining preferred: keyboard-interactive,password debug3: authmethod_is_enabled publickey debug1: Next authentication method: publickey debug1: Offering RSA public key: id_rsa debug3: send_pubkey_test debug2: we sent a publickey packet, wait for reply debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey debug2: we did not send a packet, disable method debug1: No more authentication methods to try. Permission denied (publickey).
