MD13 - Keyring Password and Evolution! (Solved) ;)

Postby Chrisnz on Sun Nov 18, 2012 6:12 pm

Small but nuisance value. Recently after startup - Evo set for auto startup with Firefox - I get the Keyring Password default 'required' box come up!? Now as this system is a fairly recent install,(4 mths) this has only just occurred. Firstly - Why?

Now if I dont see this box come up and have other screens open, then I only notice that Evo has failed to get email and then I start looking for the Keyring password required again... I dont think this is effecting Firefox? Also for some reason the system/option to 'remember this password next time' is grayed out and only the "time options" are avail - so its required every time i startup. :?

Is this a common issue with Mate? Is there a work around for this?

Thanks in Advance.

Try running the following code in a terminal, then log out and log back in. It will run almost instantly and show no output, just a return to the blinking cursor.

Code: Select all
sudo sed -i 's/gnome_keyring/mate_keyring/g' /etc/pam.d/*

Hi 'Squeezy'

Yeh that did it. Opened up a terminal, pasted the line, got the required password question for Sudo options etc as admin, had no output, logged out and in. Got the same "a program requires a default keyring password to run" etc... but this time I had the options ALL available. So I could then select - 'Auto remember the password for keyrings every time your signed in" Logged out and back in - No repeat of Keyrings locked etc.

Thanks very much that's great.
:D

Petra!! - Keyring Password and Evolution!

Postby Chrisnz on Mon May 26, 2014 6:43 pm

This time I have the emails come up with requesting the passwords for the keyring etc and they seem to have saved ok.

However still getting different window popup

"Enter password for keyring 'Default keyring' to unlock
An application wants access to the keyring 'Default keyring', but it is locked

Lock or remember keyrings on start up is available now however... How do i reset this one?

And none of the passwords I thought i had used will work. May start a new thread - subject to response or other finds in the forums. Will try and post here.

Thanks
