How do I remove "Unlock Keyring" message at bootup/

Postby jacatone on Sun Jan 18, 2009 8:44 pm

For some reason, I get the following window when I bootup into LM 6:

Unlock Keyring

The application 'NetworkManager Applet' (/usr/bin/nm - applet) wants access to the keyring, but it is locked.

How do I remove this? Thanks.

This has returned - it was completely gone in Daryna and Elyssa but now I see a bunch of such problems
Do you use wifi? I guess so
The keyring is a store for passwords that is unlocked when you log in so your applications can use passwords
Do you use another user than the one you created first or have you changed name or password?
That can cause this to happen
The solution I have seen is to change the password for the keyring to an empty password
Can be changed in the pop up you want to go away

Yes, I do use wifi for LM 6 and no, I haven't changed the password from my original install. Under the Passwords and Encryption Keys, there's nothing under the "My Personal Keys" tab but, there is "Network secret for Auto jacatone/802-11-wireless-security/wep-key0" under the "Passwords" tab. Which one are you refering to?

Sorry - my mistake
The pop up only has a possibility to fill in a password
"Password and encryption Keys" > Edit > Preferences > Password keyrings
You have login > Automatically unlocked when the user logs in
and
default
login should have the password of your account - can be worth it to change it to that (which probably means changing to the same password)
You could try the same for default and if that does not help change to no password
You could try that for login as well
Note - you will be told that this leaves you vulnerable as your passwords are not encrypted - correct, but the password for your account is still safe - it's not handled by "seahorse"
This is a bit tentative - I can't understand why this happens to a few people - what's the difference between your systems and other systems

I think this is a bug when I see that it's not only the odd one out....

ubuntu caused a regression in PAM. Simple as that.

If you ever change your login password or your root password, PAM doesn't get the clue. Your keyring password stays the same. To "unlock the keyring" you need to give it the ORIGINAL password you used when you installed. Note that I mentioned the root password. So, yeah, that means that clicking "enable root account" can cause this problem. And then you might be supremely hosed unless you can hack the random root password.

Unfortunately i see a few such problems and I ask about changed password/user but no....
Don't really know what's going on - and of course its' something with PAM and it's little seahorse :)

The use of autologin seems to be the cause that is mentioned
If you use normal log in you should not be asked for the keyring password

Husse - I do normal login and it still occurs. It cannot be that. or at least that solely.

What a nuisance this is...I think I've fallen into this situation the same way other people seem to - I tried autologin, and then when I turned that off I keep getting asked to provide a password yet again for network management.

Has anyone managed to find a way around this?

TIA - O

I have to read this again and give it some more thought before I come back to you
Thing is I had it and got rid of it - but of course I did not take note of what I did :(

I changed my password back to the very first one I used when I first installed the dist. , and for the moment it seems to have resolved the problem.

As I was perusing some other threads, I was wondering if anyone else had contemplated the utility of a sticky thread consisting only of items that would hose up or create issues on any install across the board, "Things you should never try".

"Autologin" appears to be a candidate.

Hey Husse, I use a trackpad and never tried middle click drag. Used to work left click drag. IT happens most of the time but not everytime. Also the keyring still activates re: that issue.

personally - Ubuntu NEVER worked on anything i tired it on. So much for my illiterate grandmother to load it and use it. i am afraid that the more clem uses ubuntu and the newer glitchier versions the more he and we, as a result inherit a host of things that really botch Mint up.

I would rather clem backup to daryna and clean and fix and expand upon that, than to keep going forward and resultingly making Mint more glitchy and sucky. Candid; but True! Too many hassles and issues compared to what was in daryna. the main little improvment for me in felicia is that the screen does not dim on battery in Felicia and always did and kept doing it in Daryna. Felicia seems slower overall too.

Oh - got gnome do dock in Felica and in daryna had issues with dock and any minor cosmetic windows fade thing, etc.


Ahh!! another pain in the arse glitch - when you copy sometjing, esp a weblink for example and paste it in a document - it pastes 3 copies back to back in one long extended link that does not work or else 3 separate links back to back on 3 separate lines.

where the hell did that come from????
