keyring

Post#1 by francois » 10 Aug 2013, 21:34

I get the:

Code: Select all

choose password for new keyring
This everytime I boot porteus 2.1. What is the program managing passwords under porteus xfce? Is there a way to get rid of it?

Googling for keywords:
choose password for new keyring remove

I get only references to ubuntube. :)

It looks to me like the gnome keyring prompt which is set to the users password by default so it doesn't pop up. If you changed your user password you will also need to change the gnomekeyring password to suit. Is this the case?

Yes, this does look like a message from gnome-keyring (it's in the code anyway), but I've never had it pop up.

As brokenman mentioned, if you've changed your password, please let me know and I'll test more around that (are you running as guest or root?). If that doesn't give you any leads, it may be that you've installed an application that requires a new keyring entry, which is why it's prompting you for the new password for it. Try booting in 'always fresh' mode (note that our newer 'always fresh' mode doesn't just mean without saved changes, it also includes the 'base_only' cheatcode that makes sure only the modules in /porteus/base are loaded) so we can start to narrow the search for the culprit. It might be that all you need to do is give it a password and then copy a file into your rootcopy folder or a new module.
Please take a look at our online documentation, here. Suggestions are welcome!

SOLVED FOR NOW: keyring

The prompting window dissapear with always fresh mode. I get this problem in save changes. Though I hesitated to do so, I finally used this solution inspired by ubuntu forums and inserted no password. Although this was not the exact procedure propose. Finally, if found it here, see:
http://askubuntu.com/questions/221042/h ... lt-keyring

I did not resort to suchGnome keyring protested, advising me that it was not a good idea. However,Since then the keyring message dissapeared.

It seems that it was as simple as that. :)

I will report if there are additional issues on the topic.

Thanks. :)

Right on. This came in when I traded firefox for chrome. I use it root mode with some modification, see previous thread on porteus that you might have read:
viewtopic.php?f=81&t=2407
I found a workaround for root mode:

All you need to do is to modify the last line (line 42) of the file /usr/bin/google-chrome:
from:

Code: Select all

exec -a "$0" "$HERE/chrome"  "$@" 
to:

Code: Select all

exec -a "$0" "$HERE/chrome"  "$@" --user-data-dir
Carpe diem.
