Re: Update-Grub

Sorry, I don't know the answer. Perhaps MX Boot Repair would do it somehow?

Re: Gnome-keyring - unlocked

.......... Note: Gnome-keyring can handle multiple keyrings: One of those is the "login"-keyring, automatically unlocked by pam. And another one can be marked as "default", which stores user passwords on application request, e.g by Opera, etc. If only one keyring (the login-keyring) exists, this ke...

Re: Gnome-keyring - unlocked

Thanks again, fehlix.

By deleting my login.keyring file and following the Wiki instructions I now have the keyring working correctly and :crossfingers: securely :number1:.


[There are some typos in the instructions: IMO this bit

is confusing and should be corrected.]

Re: Gnome-keyring - unlocked

Still no pesky popups :happy: .

login.keyring file appears in my home directory

The file is readable by seahorse but looks garbled in featherpad.

I believe my solution works: it's certainly simpler than those previously discussed in this thread.

Re: Gnome-keyring - unlocked

I think I have found the answer :crossfingers: :- Started seahorse (Whisker menu calls it "Passwords and Keys") and created a new keyring named login (don't know whether the name matters) with blank password. The nasty popups when starting skype or opera now do not happen :party5: . I hope this will...

Re: Gnome-keyring - unlocked

Doesn't Opera use the same browser engine as Chrome or Chromium? The workaround - fehlix was giving you the instructions, I believe. Which fehlix post has the correct workaround? (This thread is very long and confusing.) BTW am now posting from opera, after cancelling the dreaded popup three times ...

It came like that? Blame the google devs who made chrome?

It's like this in other distros as well. Manjaro forum has posts on it.
In my case I guess opera is the culprit: I don't use chrome.

But I do like opera: is there a workaround for this problem?

Re: Gnome-keyring - unlocked

Why is this keyring nonsense in the distro by default: could it not be made optional?
BTW when I attempt to remove the keyring app, synaptic wants to remove other apps which I do require.
