    password asked when boot up

    Hi,

    I've been using 11.10 as a dual boot since october with Unity. From a week or so everytime I boot up, Ubuntu asks my password twice even I'm already inside ubuntu (it's not the unlock-screen password).
    I think this started when I executed the Ubuntu One app for the first time about a week ago to back up my data. It may be important to say that I only have one user account so I'm always booting as admin.
    Also, Ubuntu asks me again my password when I enter banshee (before it didn't happen).

    Do you know why is it asking me for the password? Is it important? If not, how can I get rid of this annoying message?

    Thank you in advance.

    Is this like a gksudo password, or is it your keyring password?

    The message asks me about keyring password. (is it different than sudo password?)

    If you change the keyring password to an empty password it will stop asking you for the keyring password during bootup.

    Go to System -> Preferences -> Passwords and Encryption Keys, which will display the following dialogue.

    From here, select “Passwords: Login” -> right-mouse click -> and select “Change Password”.

    Thanks a lot.

    In my case, the UbuntuOne password was the first password that the keyring had to store, and I think that's why I was never before asked for it.

    With Unity, I had to search from the dash all the system aplications and there I found the "passwords and keys" app.

    I found also some information that may help to others to learn what is the keyring password.
