Importing wallet straight from private key

oculushutoculushut Member Posts: 1
I have added a private key into a file called "key.prv". I then run the following on command line:

geth account import "priv.key"

I get the following errors:

Fatal: keyfile must be given as argument
Fatal: keyfile must be given as argument


The priv.key file is in the same directory as geth binary. I want to try and get the key into my wallet. Am using Etherium Wallet 0.7.4.

Any tips on what I could be doing wrong?
