   - for my system instability, i fixed it by installing Xubuntu instead of
   Kubuntu (my laptop begins to be old). So another question come to me : if i
   change of computer, i presume that i will have to generate a new key pair
   (as the public key ends with my system account). Am i right ?
   - i generated a new keys pair, but i was still unable to confirm my key
   on sugar gitorious. I joined the script file of my terminal.
