Just do a gpg --verify on the .asc file and it gives you the key ID:

LibreOffice $ gpg2 --verify LibreOffice_5.2.0_MacOS_x86-64.dmg.asc
gpg: assuming signed data in 'LibreOffice_5.2.0_MacOS_x86-64.dmg'
gpg: Signature made Fri 29 Jul 08:21:07 2016 CEST using RSA key ID F434A1EFAFEEAEA3
gpg: Good signature from "LibreOffice Build Team (CODE SIGNING KEY) <>" 

Then you can fetch the key from one of the key servers, if you want. It's not really necessary.

Of course this doesn't guarantee that the key really belongs to the LO Development team.
But the fact that the signature is downloaded from the LO site should be enough guarantee.


I tried this and got:

502:$gpg2 --verify libreoffice-translations-
gpg: Signature made Wed 04 May 2016 03:22:04 PM PDT using RSA key ID AFEEAEA3
gpg: Can't check signature: No public key

This is what I have been getting each time I try to check the LO files. "...No public key" is my problem. I need the public key to import to my gpg to complete the check. I tried the:

504:$gpg --keyserver  hkp://  --search-keys
gpg: searching for "" from hkp server
gpg: keyserver timed out
gpg: keyserver search failed: keyserver error

I just tried it again using but got the same timeout result.

I need to find the public key to unlock the check process.
