Same problem here with the gnome-keyring-daemon not closing on shut down. Seems like a fairly common issue. It only happens periodically here but on two different systems.

I had the same problem (I''m running Mint 18,2 with Cinnamon). I followed the below advice but then also made sure I ran all the updates suggested. After doing this the error message does not come up. It's been about a week now, and still no problem. I'm new to Linux and started using it because I don't like Win 10 making the updates without asking me, Now I'll have to get used to remembering to check this, but I can live with that.

On the reminder on the far fight of the screen, you are notified if you want to install any updates.
When you first log in, the update link requires the you answer if you want to just keep my computer safe, you want to view the offered changes or just update.
This process has to be answered by all of the users you have created.
Just log out and log in to the other user and select the update icon and answer how to apply the updates.
All should be okay...Rafael (at least it works for me)
The "reminder on the far fight of the screen" is the little shield in the group of icons in the bottom right corner of the screen.

LM 18.3 Cinnamon: Started getting “gnome-keyring-daemon not responding” error at shutdown after installing Chromium and turning off the “Let Chromium run in the background” option. Right click the system tray icon to change the option, or find in settings-advanced-system. Tried other solutions I found posted in this forum, but nothing worked. Saw one post about gnome-keyring and Chromium, which got me thinking. PC shuts down immediately now. Hope this helps.

Update: This only worked once, and then the error came back. Uninstalled LM and went with Ubuntu-Gnome 16.04.3 LTS version. Working fine and no more errors.

I've had this problem as well, simply logging in to all the accounts on the system and logging out solved the problem.

I tried everything, but the problem persists. Finally I switched to Mint/Xfce, and everything works as expected (no more "gnome-keyring-daemon still running" annoying messages)...

schmO said it right. Simply log in and out with every user. And also press the update manager button in every user you create. That solved the problem for me too. Really irritating to see that gnome keyring message but it can be gotten rid off.

I tried log-in/log-out with all users, and it worked. Well, kind of. After next restart, it was back again "gnome-keyring-daemon running..."

Log in/out with all users every time I want just shutdown is not solution. This is simply stupid bug, and should be fixed...

FWIW, MATE doesn't have this problem either.

Same here , with 18.3 Cinnamon

Settings => Login Window => Users
I tried toggling all the default settings the other way , and then back again ..... BAD mistake !
Guest login was the only available option after that , and I can see what trouble people have had sorting that one out -

viewtopic.php?f=57&t=261704&p=1414741&h ... r#p1414741

And another thing ..... is anyone seeing the "reverse scrolling " option set to ON by default ?

I have Linux Mint 18.3 running on two laptops and both do this. The only way to stop it, I've found, is to open a new terminal and enter:

gnome-keyring-daemon -r -d

It's a pain to remember to do this before shutting down, but it does work.

I am running Linux Mint 18.3 and had the same issue until I switched from the NVIDIA device driver to the open source driver. That cleared up the issue for me.

I have this problem on a fresh install under VMware using Mint x64 Cinnamon. On the other laptop which has the same version, but not in a VM, I have no issues and never seen the problem. I've tried every suggestion with no luck. Hope it's fixed son.

UPDATE: [SOLVED]
When I was installing Mint, it asked if I wanted to log in automatically which I selected yes. I believe this is the issue, because I changed to where I have to log in and the issue has gone away. This is the prompt window:

Same problem here with LM 18.3 and Cinnamon. I think it's related with Cinnamon, as Ubuntu+Cinnamon gave me the same problem (I've dual boot for LM and Ubuntu). However, when starting Ubuntu+MATE/Gnome/Xfce, no problem at all.
What is the meaning of "gnome-keyring-daemon -r -d"? I would like to know what this command does.
Thanks

I am facing this on LM 18.3 Cinnamon, read various replies and it concluded that not a particular solution for this problem, mix solutions here ... means i have to hit & try till it solved.
