    Question Empathy asks for "default" login key all the time

    First: Very related topic, but out-of-date.

    After installing kde-minimal and toying around with it, whenever opening Empathy back in Gnome (for the first time after rebooting/logging off), it asks for the password for the keyring 'default'. It's never asked me before and it is very annoying.

    Same problem as this person – except it's for Epiphany. (From the other topic.)

    Ubuntu 10.04.
    I tried deleting the 'default' password in Passwords and Encryption Keys, but the next time Empathy starts it wants me to create another default password. v_v

    I thought I "solved it" by deleting the key and next time (I have to re-enter my accounts) pressing "use unsafe storage". But I still have to press the Empathy icon twice in order to get it open... quite frustrating.

    Edit: Problem seems to have fixed itself, somehow.
