    Empathy asks for default keyring pass - i forgot the pass.

    When i first started empathy it asked me of creating a passowrd for a default keyring. I have no idea what that is. So i entered a password, but know , when i want to create an account, it askes me for that password... I write it but it says that it is the wrong pass. how can i get around this?

    Is there a way to wipe that pass and try again?
    God loves you. Love Him too.

    Im not sure which one is which, but you can delete the keys via Accessories -> Passwords and encrypted keys.

    The only time I needed it, I removed all entries, logged off/on, and it asked for a new keyring passwd.
    "Please choose a different password, the one you have chosen is in use by UID 1432"
