Keychain password change

Postby stepnjump » Thu Nov 02, 2017 12:12 pm

Hi can someone help me? I recently changed my user account password. Of course now it prompts me for the keychain password (seahorse) which happens to be my old password. I found a way to delete the file to start over but can't find a way to just change the password to match my new password so it will not constantly prompt me for a second password everytime I log on. Thanks

Try this:
https://sites.google.com/site/easylinux ... g-password
(item 15, right column)

After removing it, don't leave the password fields blank but type in the new password.
