Still, it is not used. > Again, how did you run ssh-agent? Try something like this: > > ssh-agent x-terminal-emulator > > and then try ssh-add from the new terminal window that pops up.

It now contains exec /usr/bin/ssh-agent /usr/bin/icewm and now it works.

Hehe, good to know -- this saves a lot of typing (the passphrase is ~10 times longer than the password). > good times, > Vineet Thanks, joerg -- Gib GATES keine Chance!
