Re: Gnome-keyring - unlocked

I use Antix a lot of the time and use Google Chrome, there is no popup keyrings request. I have a number of passwords saved in Google Chrome and have no problems. Using MX on several machines, i must kill 3 keyring popups on machine #1 On Machine #2 I must kill 6 popups...

All my saved passwords are synced with Google Chrome, including my Chromebook.

What is different with Antix "No popups" and MX #1 and Number #2... Where do I look, as I am reading in this thread my passwords maybe stored in MX as text files? Or are all my passwords stored as text files in all my google chrome synced systems including my Chromebook?

Completely confused as to what is happening. I have friends calling they want the popup eliminated in their MX systems and I am still not certain what is happening. In questioning one user, she uses an apple phone to save all her passwords, but uses her MX computer when home for the larger screen. She gets 6 popup to kill and believes she has never saved a password on her computer.

Can gnome-keyring or pam be removed, to kill this popup inconvenience/inconsistency for all chromium or google chrome users?

What do you not understand in first post of this thread and the wiki entry?
It was fairly detailed explained inculding D_O short cut version, for user who don't save any password with chromium.

I think namida12 wanted to know why it happens in MX, but not in Antix. Anyway, I didn't manage to get rid of them completely at first so this is my extended procedure (just did it and works so far):

(I don't care about saved passwords, they may disappear with this method and have to be reentered)

1. install libpam-gnome-keyring
2. delete everything in "Password and Keys" application unless you have something important there
3. delete ~/.local/share/keyrings
4. reboot

That should do it (I hope).

Thanks. Good summary.
Re AntiX, will certainly look into this... :snail:

libpam-elogind 234.4.2.3
libpam-gnome-keyring 3.20.03  <--- pam module to unlock the GNOME keyring upon login
libpam-modules 1.1.8-3.6

So you solved the puzzle. antiX does it already. And your google-synced passwords are already properly
protected by Chromium and with help of gnome-keyring. :number1:
Good to know.
Thanks

fehlix.

MX has
libpam-systemd installed Not in AntiX, I do not know if that matters I am way above my head, just trying to find differences in gnome and Pam in the two...

Antix might not have gnome-keyring installed. That would be something to check

lenovo s21e & 100s - antiX-17, MX17(live-usb)
FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

check in synaptic. its shows all the status of each package.

but I see in your list that libpam-gnome-keyring is already installed in antiX (as fehlix noted). so that is the difference. MX didn't have libpam-gnome-keyring by default (next release will).
