I'm using WSL2, on Terminal, with Ubuntu installed. I have added the following to my
# Start ssh-agent # check if ssh-agent is already running if [ -z "$SSH_AUTH_SOCK" ]; then #start ssh-agent eval "$(ssh-agent -s)" fi # Ask for ssh-add read -p "Do you want to add your SSH public key? (y/n) " response if [ "$response" = "y" ]; then ssh-add ~/id_rsa ssh-add -l elif [ "$response" = "n" ]; then echo "No identity on terminal session" else echo "Invalid response" fi
With the idea that every time I open a new terminal, it will ask for a prompt if an identity is needed and proceed to start ssh-agent and add the key if yes.
At first, it appears as if the script work and it'll show the agent's PID, along with a prompt for my ssh password and I'm able to see the ssh-agent when i do
top. However, it did not actually initialize ssh-agent nor add the key, despite seeing the output of these commands.
I even did
ssh-add -l and it'll output:
The agent has no identities.
How do I go about making this work? This has to be a WSL issue..
