View Full Version : [ubuntu] NetworkManager Always Asking Keyring Authentication

January 2nd, 2009, 04:10 PM
I'm using autologin in Ubuntu 8.10 and whenever I boot up my system, the NetworkManager Applet asks for Keyring authentication. I think it's because it needs access to my wireless network key. Anyway, how can I get rid of this anoyance? Is there a way to grant permanent access to NetWork Manager for the Keying? Thanks!

Yes, there is! I just found it!

First do this (for me it was already installed):

sudo apt-get install libpam-keyring

Then run this command:

echo "@include common-pamkeyring" | sudo tee -a /etc/pam.d/gdm

And, just in case your keyring password isn't the same as your login, run this to change your keyring password:

/usr/lib/libpam-keyring/pam-keyring-tool -c
