What is Linux Mint's keyserver ?


https://linuxmint.com/verify.php

I'm not sure if the folks at Mint missed this, but there is no keyserver address to fetch the key. From the link above, the code to fetch the key is:

gpg --recv-key A25BAE09

It doesn't work. I've used gpg in the past, I know a keyserver address should be in that syntax like so:

gpg --keyserver <URL of keyserver> --recv-key A25BAE09

Anybody knows the keyserver. Thanks

terminal:
Code:
gpg --recv-key A25BAE09
gpg: requesting key A25BAE09 from hkp server keys.gnupg.net
gpg: key A25BAE09: public key "Linux Mint ISO Signing Key <root@linuxmint.com>" imported
gpg: 3 marginal(s) needed, 1 complete(s) needed, PGP trust model
gpg: depth: 0  valid:   2  signed:   0  trust: 0-, 0q, 0n, 0m, 0f, 2u
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg:               imported: 1  (RSA: 1)
Run gpg --recv-key A25BAE09 in terminal.

Code:
gpg --recv-key A25BAE09
gpg: no keyserver known (use option --keyserver)
gpg: keyserver receive failed: bad URI
It does not work, it requires the keyserver address.. I am using gpg version 1.4.20 in pclinuxos

BUT, using the keyserver address keys.gnupg.net from your terminal info. It did worked.

Code:
gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-key A25BAE09
gpg: requesting key A25BAE09 from hkp server keys.gnupg.net
gpg: key A25BAE09: public key "Linux Mint ISO Signing Key <root@linuxmint.com>" imported
gpg: 3 marginal(s) needed, 1 complete(s) needed, PGP trust model
gpg: depth: 0  valid:   1  signed:   0  trust: 0-, 0q, 0n, 0m, 0f, 1u
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg:               imported: 1  (RSA: 1)
Thanks

Me too.

I think the folks at Mint should include the keyserver address as a backward compatibility for some versions of gpg.

It works in Mint without one. Talk to the folks at pclinuxos.
