    weird Password Message

    Am trying to open empathy (and many other programs)
    and I face a weird window asking me for password with two buttons (Ok - Deny)
    and when I add root's password it doesnt accept it ..
    How can I solve this problem ?

    The password it wants is your password not root's (who shouldn't have a password in the first place unless you've changed something).

    Sorry but I dont know enough about the issue to solve it . However, a quick google search for default keyring unlocked returned many results which may have answers for you. Otherwise, hopefully someone enlightened will be along soon to help.

    I dont think that there is a folder or a file with the name .gnome2 in the home folder
    After I opened /home/(myname)/ I couldnt find any folder with the name .gnome2
    I even tried to search for it, Unfortunately didnt find any folder or file with this name
