Hi Jeff,

Thanks for the explanation. Perhaps the instructions could be clearer.

I clicked on the "read about installing" link to open the box and found

"*Step 1:* On the PPA's overview page you'll see the PPA's OpenPGP key 
id. It'll look something like this: /1024/12345678/. Copy it, or make a 
note of, the portion after the slash, e.g: /12345678/." 

so I clicked the "overview" link in that page, and used the key I found 

I suspect I should have used the "Build dependencies signing key" on the 
original page.
