Apt-get for suse: bad signature problem

Tried to install software using apt-get for SuSE, but it gives me errors like these:

Fetched 733kB in 59s (12.2kB/s)
Unknown signature /var/cache/apt/archives/ (SHA1) DSA sha1 md5 (GPG) NOT OK (MISSING KEYS: GPG#5f6842a4)
Unknown signature /var/cache/apt/archives/ogle_0.9.2-1.sb_i586.rpm: (SHA1) DSA sha1 md5 (GPG) NOT OK (MISSING KEYS: GPG#b90d278f)
Error: Bad signature

And aborts. What can I do? Most of the packages I try to install just abort.

Edit your /etc/apt/apt.conf file and paste this into it
  // Uncomment to disable GPG-signature checking for packages
 GPG-Check "false";
  // Uncomment to prevent kernel being handled along with (dist-)upgrade
  // Upgrade-Kernel "false";
  // Uncomment to hold packages with modified config files in (dist-)upgrade
  // Preserve-Config "true";
Of course you can comment/uncomment and add other parameters.
