"Secret Storage Service" is not responding when trying to shutdown

Post by hguo83 » Mon Jan 08, 2018 9:29 am

i am currently using Linux Mint 18.3 on my laptop and recently i am experiencing an intermittent problem when shutting down my laptop.

Sometimes (but not always though) i will get a pop-up box after clicking "Shut Down" in the Session box showing that "Secret Storage Service" is not responding, do i want to Wait, Cancel or Shutdown Anyway.

This is starting to get on my nerves a bit now and i can't seem to find any help by googling this issue, any help by the linux experts here will be great for me...

What you mean is most likely the gnome keyring daemon. It is an repeatedly reported problem, but the developers cannot reproduce it.

The problem seems to exist only with auto-login enabled; so login in manually should help.

Thanks for the quick reply...Really appreciate it :D

Even though this is only an intermittent issue for me but I just hate it when I couldn't shutdown smoothly like what I am used to in 17.3

By the way, I didn't get this issue at all when my laptop is running on 17.3, this issue only happen to me after I upgraded my laptop to 18.3

This issue must be a bug in 18.3 and the development team should really do something about it and not brushing it off just because they couldn't reproduce it in their lab...

I am also having this issue. Specifically, in a VirtualBox VM. Auto-login is not enabled. Cannot shutdown without a hard reboot. Always get "Secret Storage Service" is not responding when trying to shutdown" message. Latest Mint as of March 1, 2018.

Do you use the "Secret Storage Service" (=gnome keyring)? I uninstalled it. You might try disabling it unless you need it.
