    In the context of this post, "fingerprint" can mean many things...

    Do you mean a fingerprint reader for authentication?

    If so, you'll have to provide detail about what function requires authentication (login? website? something else?)

    how to do that!?

    i have tried to run the following options:
    Code:
    linux-jnmx:/home/martin # ssh-keygen -lf ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub
    ssh-keygen: /root/.ssh/id_rsa.pub: No such file or directory
    linux-jnmx:/home/martin # $ ssh-keygen -lf ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub
    If '$' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
        cnf $
    linux-jnmx:/home/martin #
    i was inspired by the following idea:

    i can run the the following command to retrieve the SSH RSA fingerprint (-l means "list" instead of create a new key, -f means "filename"):

    Code:
    $ ssh-keygen -lf /path/to/ssh/key
    So for example, on we can run a machine the command:

    Code:
    $ ssh-keygen -lf ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub
    Concrete example (if we use an RSA public key):

    Code:
    $ ssh-keygen -lf ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub 2048 00:11:22:33:44:55:66:77:88:99:aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff /Users/username/.ssh/id_rsa.p

    well - as for now - i do not have the wanted solutions.

    Again: i need to find a pgp - file that is somewehere on my notebook. I only have a fingerprint.....

    dear TSU,


    many many thanks - youre right

    i work with te kgpg - (the gui-programme that is delivered by the kde-group - i guess) and that programme

    well i guess that the kgpg treats / handles the fingerprints / id codes in a very very special manner!?


    the keys i am talking about look like something like this

    53856B7A


    or something like this : 1F308A4A

    well what can we do!?

    love to hear from you

    hello again dear TSU.




    i runned this



    Code:
    linux-jnmx:/home/martin # gpg -k 53875B7C
    gpg: error reading key: no public key
    linux-jnmx:/home/martin #
    and got back - no public key....
