If you restore the backup of ~/.gnupg (with all sub directories) with the right permissions (tar xpf) you should be done. GnuPGnstores all its data in a mahinve independet format and thus a copy of the directory works on all platforms. For cleanness, you may not want to exclude ~/.gnupg/random_seed from the backup or delete that file from the target box after restoring. > I use Thunderbird/Enigmail which is using gpg2 but I originally > created my key pair using gpg 1.4. Does this have any ramifications? No. If you start using gnupg 2.1 the secret keys will be automatically migrated to the new format (the old secring.gpg will be kept but not used by 2.1).
