    Unhappy Backup started asking for keyring password

    I'm fairly new to Ubuntu and Linux in general, so I may be wrong here

    I'm using the backup tool and have an automated backup running daily that backs up to a drop box folder.

    I've noticed that since I upgraded to 12.10 every time the backup auto runs it prompts for the keyring password.

    I'm sure it didn't used to, but like I said, I could be wrong.

    Is there any way around this? I wanted the backups to run unattended.

    Look forward to suggestions.

    Thanks
    Chris

    Re: Backup started asking for keyring password

    Is the OS set for automatic login?

    When we log in by using our password that opens the key-ring. It could be that when we use automatic login our key-ring is not being opened and so tasks such as this need authentication.
