View Full Version : [gnome] passphrase prompt window

August 26th, 2009, 09:38 AM
i'm using ubuntu 9.04. i've tried to encrypt a file using gpg (from the console). but pgp is opening a separate window for me to enter a passphrase. i would prefer to type it directly in a console. i think the same happens when i'm asked for ssh key passphrase - new window popping up again. where can i disable this window? is it some gnome service?

This sounds like the Gnome Keyring (http://live.gnome.org/GnomeKeyring). I'm not sure if you can prevent it from managing these passwords. Hopefully the documentation or another forum user can help with that.

i'm afraid it's something else. i've killed keyring daemon, but passphrase window still pops up.
