    It still asks me once to type in the password. That's better than 4 times.
    Trying to go Open Source. Begging for patience.

    Hi

    Alright, try this. Right click on the login folder on the password and encryption keys dialog and select change password. Make sure it is the same as your logon password.

    Kind regards

    Re: get rid of default keyring request

    Many thanks for this thread. What I ended up doing to get it to work on ubuntu 11.04 on a gateway nv52 ( don't know if computer type matters) is select login automatically and then open up the passwords and encryption keys I had two folders in there login and default I deleted the default and then rebooted. Upon reboot I had the same 3 things plus an additional on or two I clicked on more and selected .... unlock this everytime I log in then entered my password. after I did this for everyone I rebooted and was good.

    I had this problem with network manager for awhile but found a solution several releases ago. If you right click the network and wireless button and then edit connections select your connection and choose edit then select available to all users and that solved that hope this helps others and maybe myself if i forget

    I had the same problem with password prompts during startup.
    I previously had the automatic login on, which I think caused all my stored passwords to go to a keyring named "Default" instead of the login keyring.

    As I didn't find a way to copy the passwords from one keyring to another with seahorse I tried renaming the keyring files in ~/.gnome2/keyrings. And now the keyring is opened as I login.
    NOTE: As matt_symes said, the keyring and login passwords have to be identical.

    What I did was:
    Code:
    cd ~/.gnome2/keyrings
    rm login.keyring
    mv default.keyring login.keyring
    echo -n "login" > default
    The last echo sets the login keyring as default, this can be achieved with seahorse aswell.

    I didn't try to merge keyrings as I didn't have any passwords saved in the login keyring. Has anyone tried merging? A quick look at the keyring file suggests that simple cat keyring_1 >> keyring_2 will not work.

    The plugin is - as you said - for Firefox (btw. available for other browsers as well).
    The problem we are dealing with in this thread is not with saved passwords in a web browser, though.

    This is a fantastic solution. I've had this problem multiple times over the last few Ubuntu installs and I think I usually ended up just removing the default keyring password and storing the passwords unencrypted to avoid dealing with the hassle. Thanks!

    +1 for this solution. Thanks. (This thread should probably be marked solved.)
