Sky Charts install

<< < (6/6)

The line

--- Code: ---gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.
--- End code ---
indicates your system wasn't able to import the public key required.

I'd suggest trying it again.  You should see a message including

--- Code: ---gpg: key 8B8B57C1AA716FC2: public key "Patrick Chevalley <[email protected]>" imported
--- End code ---
instead of the no valid data found message.

If it continues to fail we need to look at why your system isn't importing keys.

This is what I get after entering the first line:

I'm trying to install Sky Charts (Carte du Ciel) in a new install of v.5.8 of L.L.  First of all, what should I look for in the long list of possible downloads of software? .Deb?  ,Tar? The .Deb seems to not get started installing.  The .tar tried .  I can supply error messages. Thanks for the help.
