    Question Unlock Keyring window pops up at login with Xubuntu 11.10

    Hi.

    Each time I log into Xubuntu 11.10, this Unlock Keyring window pops up [attached image]. How do I rectify this?

    Thanks.

    Just had the same problem here with Xubuntu 12.04 when running DejaDup backup.
    The Seahorse data encryption and digital signature app. is not installed by default in Xubuntu. It seems to take care of providing access to passwords for some Ubuntu applications - install it and the nagging requests to unlock the Keyring should go away.

    Hi jbrice. I installed seahorse and rebooted but the same window popped up.

    Damn.

    I'm running Xubuntu inside Vbox but am thinking of putting Xubuntu 12.04 on my main PC. I hope the programmers sort out bugs/glitches such as this.

    Running Xubuntu 12.04 here and have not experienced this issue.

    Did this start when you first installed 12.04, or did it appear suddenly after some time? Have you recently (or before the issue appeared) installed anything?

    It is Xubuntu 11.10 in VirtualBox. I cannot remember.

    Hmm, "changed" the password for "Passwords: login" in Seahorse (Settings > Passwords and Keys) but used exactly the same password (my system login password) for both the old and the new passwords.
    And now it seems to working as it should - no nagging about unlocking keyring. Crazy I know, but there it is!

    Guess there must be something slightly buggy with the keyring in the Xubuntu environment.

    Maybe, but do you utilize the auto-login feature (if one exists for Xubuntu)?
    If so, disable that and login manually and seahorse will unlock.

    I unchecked a few items in Applications Autostart. The problem seems to be gone. I am not sure which item was causing the problem - Ubuntu One or Bluetooth or other?
