    {16.04} - [remove login keyring]

    * user password does not work for this popup, why?
    * why does it popup when 'auto login' is off, and user acc has a pw?
    * is this separate from a regular pw? is it different?
    * is it good to remove?

    same exact problem as https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2322858

    On a new install, the login.keyring password is the same as your user password and is unlocked
    when you login at the greeter.
    If you autologin the user, the login.keyring is not unlocked and you will get the dialog to unlock the login.keyring.

    If auto login is off and you still see the dialog to unlock the login.keyring it means your user login and login.keyring passwords don't match.
    You can delete the login.keyring and a new one will be created using the same password as your user login.
    ***This will delete any passwords you may have saved for websites or email apps.
    Code:
    rm -i ~/.local/share/keyrings/login.keyring
    Hit the "y" key then Enter to confirm removal.

    or

    This is copied straight out of the Ubuntu Desktop Guide which is available by entering "help" in the dash.
    Change the keyring password
    If you change your login password, it may become out of sync with the keyring password. The keyring keeps you from having to remember lots of different passwords by just requiring one master password to access them all. If you change your user password (see above), your keyring password will remain the same as your old password. To change the keyring password (to match your login password):
    1. Open the Passwords and Keys application from the Dash.
    2. In the View menu, ensure By keyring is checked.
    3. In the sidebar under Passwords, right-click on Login keyring and select Change Password.
    4. Enter your Old Password, followed by your new Password, and Confirm your new password by entering it again.
    5. Click OK.

    dont' know why this happens -- "login.keyring it means your user login and login.keyring passwords don't match"

    "
    If you change your login password, it may become out of sync with the keyring password... If you change your user password (see above), your keyring password will remain the same as your old password"

    [COLOR=#000000]* how to prevent this syncing problem from happening? why does the syncing problem occur?

    doesn't look like you can use that code when rooted, but it's probably fixed

    --

    doesn't look like there's any easy way to find the solution by googling, etc.

    so best thing to do is to ** 1) understand, ** 2) prevent it from happening

    The passwords just don't unsync themselves. You changed one or the other.
    The reason it's happening is because unlike Windows, Linux assumes you know what you're doing and allows you to access all parts
    of your system which you seem to be doing and making a right mess of.

    The reason the command I gave didn't work is because ~/.local/share/keyrings/login.keyring points to a file in your homefolder.
    The tilde "~" is short for the users home folder eg /home/linuxhard so path is /home/linuxhard/.local/share/keyrings/login.keyring
    If you're running as root the path becomes /root/.local/share/keyrings/login.keyring which is a completely different path and the file doesn't exist.

    Furthermore if you are running as root or using sudo indiscriminately you're wasting everyones time
    trying to find out why things aren't working.

    Nothing wrong with breaking things if you want to delve deeper than you should at this stage but be prepared to
    start afresh,reinstall and learn.
