Sorry, fehlix, I am confused by your pdf.
Please tell me in simple words how to completely disable the annoying popups which I get every time I open opera - I just click cancel on the popup but it pops up again, and I again click cancel .... finally opera starts. I just want to stop all this annoyance - I don't want any keyring.

Just to note that this is not a 100% guarantee the problem will stay gone. But if it reoccurs, simply do it again.

Or enter your username password, works for me until it gets TOO annoying.

Now in the Wiki: https://mxlinux.org/uncategorized/gnome-keyring/
I can't find "/.local/share/keyrings".

Perhaps because I do not want, and have not created, any keyrings?

You're searching within the main file system, not your home directory. In Thunar file manager click View/Show Hidden Files within your own home directory (which Thunar will open by default when you start it) and you'll see .local. Double-click on it then on share then on keyrings.

Actually, you left off the symbol "~" that is in the Wiki, which indicates what JayM said.

.. I am confused ..
Please tell me in simple words ...
I can try simplify to reformulate in layman's terms .. or perhaps think about a little "unlock my opera" rescue script... later ... :snail:

For now quick workaround/fix:
-> don't use Thunar as Root - as it will lock all keyrings
-> just logout an login again : keyring will be "unlocked" when logged in
-> if entered already a password into the"keyring popup", and if
this password differs from your normal log-in password, better remove all keyrings and
logout login again.

Opera is based on Chromium, which now insists on having a keyring ...
I might check whether "plaintext keyring" (which is not gnome-keyring") is still possible to enable.
OTOH, plaintext keyring is highly not recommended, as session-hi-jacking might be to easy, so if you do any sensible stuff, with login's on website, better think twice ...
ALso some user recommend an "empty" password to use, which goes in the same in-secure category as plaintext keyring
... that's it for now ... :snail: ...later ...

I believe that user has been corrected and feels ashamed...

Still can't find it.

P.S. I am using MX8.2, fully updated: my username is "dtest"
P.P.S May I suggest that this keyring nonsense should be made optional rather than being in the distro by default?
