    How to unlock keyring automatically for autologin user

    Dear all,
    As stated in the following link, a window will popup for the user to input the keyring password when it is autologin:
    https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu...question/85771:
    If you are autologin'ing to your machine, gdm uses su to become your user, without ever using the password. As a result pam-gnome-keyring can't pass the password along, and you need to unlock the gnome-keyring by entering the password.

    If you are autologin'ing to your machine, you can set your gnome-keyring password to blank. You will no longer be prompted to enter the gnome-keyring password, but your credentials/passwords/etc. will be stored on your system in plaintext, where anyone (i.e. bad hacker) who gains access to your system could see them.


    I don't think it is a good idea to set the keyring password to blank. Is there any other way to skip the input-keyring-password window when autologin?
    Thanks.

    Thank you raja for the information.
    But the solution in the link you provided, was still the same one: set the keyring password to blank. This might damage the security of the OS.
    Is there any other way?

    Thanks again, raja.
    But I can still see nothing but the blank keyring password, although this new link is a bit longer.
