Keyring on Auto Login
I'm on 10.04...
Is there a way to make autologin give the keyring credentials also?
I am trying to use the remote desktop feature to manage a "media" PC... I have set the machine to autologin, but in order to access it using Remote Desktop i have to put in the password.
I have read some posts about using libpam-something-or-another... it doesn't seem to solve the issue with auto login...
On a normal login, i don't have to give any other passwords.
If it's going to automatically log me in, why wouldn't it work just like a "normal" login?
I just want to be able to reboot remotely and still access using Remote Desktop
I am aware of the many vnc packages, but i need to access the same screen as the terminal so i can start a movie playing remotely and it plays on my TV...
Re: Keyring on Auto Login
I found a similar problem in another thread... of course i found it AFTER i posted... here's the solution anyway
Applications >> Accessories >> Passwords And Encryption Keys
Right Click "Passwords: login"
Select "Change Password"
Change the password to a blank password
While this leaves my passwords unencrypted, it's not that big a deal on that machine.
I would *N*O*T* recommend this on a mission critical machine...
