View Full Version : [gnome] [SOLVED] network manager asking for pasword

June 9th, 2008, 02:23 AM
Every time I log in to my laptop it asks me for a password for 2 things. One is "nm-applet" the other is "cGmail" which check gmail. I don't know why it is asking for a password. It never used to until recently, Any idea how to set it so it saves a password so it doesnt ask me every time?

Most efficient way I find to fix this is by removing the somehow corrupted keyrings.

Press "Alt+F2" and type in

nautilus ~/.gnome2/keyrings
And remove the entire contents of the folder in the new window (it'll be something like three files named "default" "default.keyring" and "login.keyring".)

Then logout/login. You'll be prompted for a password, but thereafter you shouldn't be prompted again. (Or if you still do, look for a small checkbox with the title like "Do not ask me again" or "Remember".
