Configure mate-keyring for my session

Postby Salva on Mon Feb 25, 2013 8:58 pm

Hello.

It seems that I can't configure mate-keyring to be as gnome-keyring used to be in Linux Mint 9. In Mint 9, each time I started a program like Pidgin, a pop-up window asked for a password to unlock the keyring for that active session only (it asked for the password just 1 time during that session).

With Mint 13, a password is never asked, something I really don't like. Maybe the solution is easy, but I can't find the way to do it. Some solutions I found searching with google, require to install gnome-keyring, seahorse and editing some of the files at /etc/xdg/autostart/ (grep OnlyShowIn *) but none of them worked for me.

Am I missing something?
Can somebody show me the right way to do it?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!

Distribution: Linux Mint 13 Maya
Desktop: MATE

Ok... I give up.

Can't find a way to configure mate-keyring to ask the keyring password before a program like filezilla conects to ftp.

Does anybody knows a program that handle passwords in mint?

For me is a security risk because anybody can access the control panel of my web pages... :(

I tried looking up some things for you but everything I tried to look up led me right to pages you said you have already looked at in your previous posts. I wish I could help you but, my knowledge is limited.

Thanks CtrlAltDel!

Basically the same thing happened to me, all searches have led me to those pages which have not been useful to configure mate-keyring.

Anyway I appreciate your response and your help!
