(Solved) How to make MATE forget LUKS encrypted pendrive password

Post by tmfk » Wed Sep 19, 2018 1:57 am

I accidentally answered to always remember the password instead of having it forget after logout. Info I have found says the password is stored on gnome keyring but I am unable to locate that. I dont think it is even installed . Help?

to clarify, I do not want MATE to be able to automatically access my encrypted flash drive anymore without me entering the password.

Seahorse is the name of the regular application which manage the gnome keyring.
You can look after it with the mate menu search box 8)

No. The poster clearly said, "You can look after (for) it with the mate menu search box". If it's not installed then install it.

Most of us are not in the US, and don't call me names unless you'd like a word with the moderators.
