I'm seeing some scuttlebut elsewhere on the web about this keyring thing with chrome/chromium.

What some folks are saying is that the prompt gets triggered if you are using autologin. I don't know about that, so I thought I would ask here if anyone is using autologin.
I am not using any login. Google spies on me too much to begin with. :mad: I don't need Google to spy on me even more. :mad: I only use Chromium as a back up browser as Firefox is my main browser. :wink:

I meant the MX system login.

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

Oh, O.K. I don't use auto login. I have MX Linux set up so I must enter my password.

If you have disables autlogin, i.e. you need type in your password, the libpam-gnomekeyring,
will automatically unlock your default login-keyring ( if keyring-password matchs login password).
Ah, that last sentence explains a lot.

Machines that leave my home never have autologin. They use the gnome keyring. And they have an encrypted folder for sensitive info.
I noticed the Chrome problem on all my boxes regardless if autologin was enabled or not -- AND regardless if I had already created a keyring or not. (Which Opera uses).

But my keyring password is never the same as my login password. So, that's why I was seeing the Chrome problem everywhere.
Son, someday all this will belong to your ex wife.

See my other threat Gnome-keyring - unlocked:
You keyring-password can be and shall be complex and different.
The important part is to use a Login-keyring, which unlock the password-keyring on request.

I assume this might have been not well enough communicated - and lot's of folk's don't know how to fix it.
