    How do i jailbreak ubuntu? Keyring?

    For the love of god, what in the hell is this sabotage?!?! I looked it up to no avail with no solution to this god awful problem. When i login or when my session starts this keyring window keeps popping up. Please how do i remove it. I already went into seahorse and removed the passwords but this sabotage keeps popping up on my system, informing me an application wants to use "keyring" without discribing to me What application wants to use keyring, what ever keyring is anyway i have no clue. Please help thanks!

    Did you try giving it what it wants?

    The keyring is an application that saves your stored passwords from apps like Firefox, Empathy, etc. Usually, the password the keyring is asking for is your login password. However, if this was the case, i don't think it'd bug you for a password, so the keyring password might be different for some reason. Did you set a password when you installed Ubuntu?

    use a blank password to set up the keyring then it wont bother you any more, use the forum search, there are lots of threads on keyrings issues.

    Also, if you have changed your login password since you originally installed Ubuntu, the keyring needs the ORIGINAL password you used, not the current one. If the two are different, that would explain you getting the prompt.

    Make sure you disable automatic login, therefore when entering your password upon login it will also unlock your keyring. Hope it helps. I had the same issue.
