Converting openssh key from seahorse to putty

If you want to use your key generated in Seahorse in Putty you’ll have to convert it. The process is clear – make export of private key in Seahorse and import it to Puttygen. However one extra step is required – you have to delete everything before —–BEGIN DSA PRIVATE KEY—– mark. Otherwise Puttygen won’t recognise private key.
