Gnome keyring
« on: 20. November 2015, 22:49:30 »
Recently, gnome-keyring started asking for the keyring password.  Has something changed recently?

Nah, but it will do that for things like Chrome/Chromium, and if you use autologin. Typically gnome-keyring is unlocked when you login to whatever GUI (OB, in your case), but if you choose to use autologin, it still needs unlocking.

To avoid it, I use:

Code: [Select]
sudo mv /usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon /usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon-old
then

Code: [Select]
sudo killall gnome-keyring-daemon
It's kinda serendipitous this just came up, as I used those commands not just 5 minutes ago after a fresh Arch+GNOME+Chrome install. I used it to login to check the Manjaro forums, LOLOLOL!

Regards.
P.S. This may be the oldest Manjaro/GNOME-keyring fix I remember using. :D

It's not that I want to disable gnome-keyring.  I just want it unlocked when I login (not auto).  It is useful for things like subversion so that I don't need type subversion passwords and I don't need to have subversion store them unencrypted.  It used to unlock when I logged in but now it doesn't.

Check your autostart.

It is running -- otherwise it would not be asking for my Gnome keyring password.  But it should be unlocking on login like it used to.
