I just re-sized my windows partition on my laptop and installed 10.04.1. Brand new clean install. I set up my user account, gave it a password, and everything was fine until I tried to connect to my wireless. I typed in the security key for my wireless, and it asked for a password to unlock the default keyring. The problem is, I never set a password for the "default" keyring. I never changed my user password. I didn't auto-login, I entered my password. This was the first boot up of the machine after installing 10.04.1. I can't use Empathy, because the keyring cannot be unlocked. If I "cancel" it gives me an error saying the account details are wrong, but I log into my facebook, aim, and msn every day, so I know the passwords are correct.
I have read about other issues with the keyring and with the auto-login bug that is associated with it. I have also read up on the bug that occurs with that as well. I couldn't find anything about my specific situation, so I hope this isn't a re-post of an issue that has already dealt with, but I did look it up. If it helps, the laptop I am running is a HP Pavilion dv7-3065dx, and I have Ubuntu Desktop 10.04.1 x86 installed. Clean install and the only thing I have done was log in, connect to network, and try to set up Empathy. Both Empathy, and connecting to network, gave me the issues with the keyring. It appears that there is already a password for the default keyring, it is not blank, and my user login password does not work for it. I'm at a loss...
using ubuntu 10.10.. firsly it was asking me for password when i open my computer but i disabled that option and now it doesnt ask me.. but there is something else.. the desktop appear.. and i receive a message like i have to enter password to unlock the login keyring something like that.. can somebody explain me why? what can i do to stop this? i can actually use the computer open folders do anything but the password box keep appearing.
I have recently made a fresh install of Lucid Lynx. After restarting my computer (due to kernel updates), my log in password no longer unlocks my login keyring. I have never changed either password, so there is no "old" password to resort to.How do I fix this? I am not opposed to deleting whatever data is encrypted by this keyring. Also, how might this have happened? This could be a bug; are there any relevant log files or such?
I have installed Fedora11 onto my Dell laptop; as nice as it is whenever I log in I am prompted to "enter password for default keyring to unlock". Now, I don't recall ever setting one up, each password I try (e.g. the user or root) fails and gives me the prompt again. After a few clicks of "deny" it does go away but I want to know what it is and if I can stop it from prompting me).
I am new to linux and ubuntu. I am using ubuntu Hardy Heron release 8.04 I have not used it in a long time and then when I did fire up the laptop. I get a message asking me to enter a password for keyring. The message is as follows; Unlock Keyring "The application 'Network Manager Applet' (/usr/bin/nm-applet) wants access tot he default keyring, but it is locked.' Password: _______________
Then I can Deny or OK it. How can I disable that and keep it from popping up. Also, it there a way to figure out/change the administrator password if you don't remember it as well?
After installing ubuntu 10.10 on pc i had it running fine for roughly 2 weeks. i have selected automatic login so i do not need to mess about logging in etc, but recently my pc asks for my password to unlock keyring once it shows my desktop.
The font size on Chromium for the URL and tabs is *far* too small. I went into the "Under the Hood" settings, but to no avail. How can I make this bigger? [URL] Also, the bookmarks bar seem to be inheriting system fonts, but it looks like that size is hard coded too. I love chromium but I need some accessibility here.
i was using eclipse in windows 7, th fonts are small so I can see the code good. But I want to use in Ubuntu so I setup. But here the font size is huge and windows are taking more space and I am unable to code.How to reduce the overall font size and make it small?
Does anyone know how to change the font size of the user interface elements of the chromium/chrome browser? I've searched around for a solution but only come up with how to change the font size of viewed sites. Just to be clear, I want to increase the font size of the tabs headings, bookmark menu etc, not the font size of the sites I'm viewing...Using chromium on lucid...
I'm using Ubuntu 10.04LTS. I'm trying to configure my chat accounts. But after entering username and password, it is asking "Enter password to unlock your login keyring". I have entered my login password. But it is saying that "The password you use to log in to your computer no longer matches that of your login keyring."
I installed "Ubuntu 10.04 LTS - the Lucid Lynx" Amd_64 version on my dell vostro 1015. My screen resoultion is set to 1366*768(16.9) by default because the font size on web pages looks too small. I am not able to understand if it is font size too small or is it a resolution set too high. I am trying to fix this because I find very difficult to read web pages specifically. I tried to zoom in on firefox, but that is not permanent solution.
I want to decrease my screen resolution. I opened drop down and I find following:
None of the above resolution suits my laptop. The monitor type identified by Ubuntu says Laptop Monitor.
I am running openSUSE 11.4 KDE 64bit. I found the default font in YAST, for example, in Bootloader and Software Management, is about 8-9 points which is too small to read. Why on earth does openSUSE set a tiny font size as default?
I did try Configure Desktop >Application Appearance, etc. as well as qtconfig in the terminal but these seem not to increase the font size to 12-14 points.
I am have upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10 in my laptop. After performing the reboot, the shell/console resolution went very high and the font size went too small. How to regain the old console shell resolution as in 9.04. I require this urgently as my laptop suffers the white screen problem. Switching between Ctrl+Alt+F6 and Ctrl+Alt+F7 I could get back the screen as the change in the resolution switches off and on the screen, so that I can negotiate with the white screen problem.
I'm trying to do is protect the computer against housemates. The standard procedure I do with Lenny:
1. Password protect BIOS.
2. In BIOS, always boot from hard drive. Disable booting from any other device such as USB or CD-ROM.
3. Password protect Grub (v1) using the "password --md5 $1$9MuaA/$5TDLgvmcEiCWNr5W9VaMK1" syntax in my menu.lst file.
With the above precautions in place, [I think] the only way to gain root access to the system is to take the case lid off and proceed to do stuff physically (like set jumpers and/or take out the hard drive). Am I correct? My reasoning for this is, the computer boots -> must boot from HD -> must load Grub -> must go to default menu item since others are protected, and cannot command prompt in Grub without password.
Anyhow, In Squeeze, I was a bit disappointed to find out, after doing a bit of Google-research, that Grub v2 (which is standard on Squeeze now) does not easily support password protecting the Grub menu. Am I correct? Will this issue perhaps be addressed in the Squeeze final release? Is this feature dumb anyways because the Grub password is of no use (i.e. my paragraph above is complete horseradish)?
Another thing I would like to do is change the console font and size back to something more "normal" or "classic", not some crazy tiny font that's only found in totally bleeding edge Linux distrubutions <gasp!>. I found that the Squeeze console font (e.g. when I type Ctrl+Alt+F1) is wicked tiny. I wanna change it to "normal". Grub v2 password and console font config?
When I used slackware 13.0 I installed wine 1.1.40 and then I installed an old program, PowerTAB. The font for the mf, mp, and other symbols was very small and unreadable. To solve this I put sylfaen.ttf in /home/darksaurian/.wine/drive_c/windows/Fonts and this magically fixed the problem. I don't know why or how I figured it out. But now with Slack 13.1 I do the exact same thing, same version of wine, and the font trick does nothing. The mf, mp symbols remain unchanged and unreadable.
I think this counts as a security question. I didn't know where else to place this.It's really preventing me from doing some things, such as setting up the Empathy IM program for chatting and whatnot, and this default keyring really haulting any progress I can make on that front. It also pops up when I'm just booting up the laptop. My brother set the password and then forgot, so he tried all of these passwords and it would never work. It always pops back up several moments later and reiterates its question. It goes away when I click on 'Deny', but now I can't follow that same route when trying to set Empathy IM Client up. I would like to either do away with this password requirement, or just change it to something I can easily remember
i tried to use empathy with my gmail account ,but when i add my account details then a messsage come and ask to enter password for default keyring to unlock. next to it the given message is:The Application 'Account Manager'(/usr/lib/telepathy/mission-control-5)wants acccess to default keyring,but it is locked. while i have never entered any password except for my user account and root account.also i don't know about default keyring and its function.
Im unable to login to my computer because directly on startup the "unlock login keyring" pops up, i can move my mouse around but cant click anything or type/use commands.
The loading also takes longer then usual. This is in lucid 64bit. I installed gnome-do the night before so i think it has something to do with that, but i really dont know what to do. I tried going into terminal (alt-f2), or killing the process with ctrl-alt-esc but they keyboard is useless (though not entirely frozen as i can turn on/off numlock etc)
Is there someway i can bypass this temporarily and then get rid of it (from bug reports ive read it seems deleting gnome-do will work)
After booting, When prompted to enter a password to unlock my login keyring, I tried to enter in my password, but it won't let me. I can move my cursor but everything else is frozen.
I tried to access the terminal by using ctrl + alt + f2, I entered my login and password from there and it worked, I just don't know what to do afterwards. don't know what other information I can provide other than the fact that I am using Ubuntu 10.04
At each startup, Ubuntu asks me for the password for the keyring.
Code: An application wants access to the keyring 'Default', but it is locked. Enter password for keyring 'Default' to unlock Even if I choose:
Code: Automatically unlock this keyring whenever I'm logged in it keeps asking it to me at each startup and the connection does not establish if I don't do it. I don't see anything special in the settings for "Passwords and Encryption keys"
I seem to have added all my passwords to the default keyring while using a live session. Now when I log in, I am then asked to unlock my default keyring. I thought if you logged in with a password this wasn't necessary. When I look at my passwords and encryption keys, all my passwords appear in the default folder, and nothing is in my login folder. Is there a way to migrate these passwords. Or is there a way to automatically unlock my default keyring?
I just get F11 installed in my laptop, X60 IBM. I have trouble get to connect my wireless network. When I try to connect my router using network manager, it comes up with a screen call unlock keyring window and ask for password. Can somebody tell me where can I get the keyring password. I have try router password, root password and sudo password and it would not unlock. network manager show I have wireless set up and enable.
ive seen numerous posts regarding this but they are dated w/ mostly dead linksi just installed accountsdialog and enabled autologin, which works to a point, but as soon as the desktop appears i get a dialog similair to:''enter password for default keyring unlock"itd be great to fix this so no passwords are required,=>http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Featur...rAccountDialog*editappears to only be occurring to activate wifi connection
I am getting a prompt namely unlock keyring when i start up my PC and when i type in my password my wireless gets connected automatically... I didnt have this issue before.. My wireless onnection used to start up automatically when i start my PC...
I have set my computer to auto-login and as a result, the keyring asks me to enter my password every time I start the computer in order to access the password for the Ubuntu One client.
The whole point of auto-login was to not have to enter a password.
Is there a sensible way to use Ubuntu One without having to supply a password each time?
I say sensible, because I would like to avoid leaving the keyring totally open. I understand the purpose of the keyring, and that it should be locked by default. As far as I can see, the only potential work-arounds for the problem I am having seems to be to set the keyring password blank, thereby exposing all my keys to anyone on the computer. This option obviously defeats the purpose of having a keyring in the first place.
Is there not an option that lets me set that specific passwords are available automatically to specific applications? So that the entire keyring remains locked, but those passwords I deem ok to be unsecured are available to those applications I deem trustworthy? This option seem to exist for network-manager, why not for the Ubuntu One client?
Is this option not available, or am I missing something? If it isn't, I guess that I'll stop using Ubuntu One, which would be a shame.
