Ubuntu Networking :: Skip Entering The Keyring Password For Wireless On Login?
Apr 19, 2010
Well, first off I'd like to say that I am much happier with the wireless on Ubuntu 10.04 than I was on 8.10 (the last time I tried Ubuntu). However, there is a small annoyance I'd like to fix: every time I log in, I get a prompt saying that an application (the wireless network manager) is requesting the password for such-and-such keyring. I have to enter the password before I can connect to my network. Is there a way to get around this somehow so that I don't have to enter the keyring password for this keyring (the "default" keyring) every time I log in?
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."
New to forum and quite new to any linux distro, have played around a little with older Ubuntus, having spare desktop I thought it was time to see how things are developing with the latest release. 10.10, downloaded and cd made.
Installed without a hitch, picked up all the hardware even my Edimax 712g nic. entered wireless network details and was off. Enjoying the new look and feel of the OS surfing, mailing and connecting to my win 7 laptop for my music shares. We then had visitors round so shut down, and went back to it this morning, only to find that a couple of things had changed.
(1) no matter what I do (Followed several different suggestions found on here) and no matter how many times I check all the details, It will not connect, to the router just carries on seemingly without end trying; only broken by the requests for the security key of the router.
(2) the keyring password is not recognised.
I thought I may have done something I didn't realise, so I simply did a reinstall, everything exactly the same, and just replicate the problem I perfromed a restart; ending up with exactly the same result.
The only problem I am experiencing is that when I boot Ubuntu quickly finds my wireless network but does not automatically connect to it. A window then comes up asking me to "enter password for Keyring default". After having then entered this password the connection does take place and remain stable. So really no big deal but why do I need to do this every time I boot up. This is new to me. Never had anything like this on previous versions.
I just did a fresh install of 10.10 and whenever I log on it request the password for default keyring (the same as sign in password) in previous versions of ubuntu it never asked and automatically started the wireless; now it asks and tells me the password is incorrect. I can hit cancel a numerous amount of times and it will eventually allow me to connect, but that doesn't seem like a good fix in my opinion. This also happened when I tried out lubuntu 10.04 which I promptly removed due to the menu style.
Until this morning, my Wireless had always been working fine. This morning I rebooted after an Ubuntu update and now:
- I am asked twice for "enter password for keyring 'default' to unlock" whereas before I was always just asked once.
- The connection seems to be established, with the icon showing good reception and the tooltip reads "Wireless network connection 'mywifi' active: mywifi (100%)
BUT I can not connect to any website or ping the machines of my network, even by IP address. All of the other computers around (Mac, Windows) can use the Wireless as usual. My Wireless is WPA-PSK TKIP hidden SSID. My Ubuntu is 10.10 Maverick.
I am new to Ubuntu and been trying to download some software not in the Software centre but when I go to terminal and I enter the command text I get prompted for my password ( it automatically has my login name) but the flashing cursor will not allow me to enter any text ,it just keeps on flashing but then it tells me I have entered incorrect password, What can be the problem ? The keys are not connecting with the terminal window it appears.
I have a brand new install.I was doing some housekeeping and made a more sure password.Something went wonky and I got locked out.So I booted to root and changed the password.I'm back in the box now.But, my keyring password no longer matches my user password.So every time I want to do something I am asked for my old password.How do I change my keyring password to match my login password?
I just updated to 10.10 (), but I have one problem. I changed my password a few days ago, and now whenever I log on, It comes up with the attached message, and I have to type in my OLD password to connect to wireless.
i am having a problem with the installation with ubuntu 10.10 during the installation, i was entering my setup info (login password, timezone, etc.) when everything stopped working, it wouldnt let me continue, the forward button wouldnt work. i let it set for a good 30 minutes but it wouldnt do anything.
so unable to continue, i restarted and tried to boot from my cd drive and now it wont boot from the drive, and since i let ubuntu delete my windows partition, i cant boot from it so i basically have a blank hard drive. the cd drive will boot other cds because i booted hirens boot cd in an attempt to make sure the cd drive was functioning and ran diagnostics to make sure the drive was alright.
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 found much of the info is out of date. I installed Lucid - my /home was on a separate partition so I did not format it to keep the original settings and mail. When trying to send/receive mail, Evolution now asks for the old login password from the previous install to open the mail keyring. "The password you use to login no longer matches that of your login keyring" There is a box to enter the old PW.
SOLUTION: -Go to Applications-Accessories-Passwords and Encryption Keys -Right click on Passwords:login -Select Change Password -Type your old login password in the "Old Password" field -Type your new password in both the Password: and Confirm: fields. -Click OK -REBOOT
Evolution will now use your new login password to access the keyring.
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 tried to run Ubuntu One on my Lucid Lynx, however, when I want to start the Ubuntu One Client, I just receive a message from Login Keyring asking for a password:
The password you use to log in to your computer no longer matches that of your login keyring.
I haven't change my login password for a long time. It is still the same and it works.
However, when I put my current password below the keyring's message it says it is incorrect. When I try to change the password in in Accessories > Passwords and Encryption Keys it writes that the old password (my current one) is not correct.
What happens? Which password should I type there? I do not remember I set somewhere any other password than my current login one.
I have Lucid working nicely now, and I've started using Gwibber, which seems to try to connect at login. The only problem is that I'm immediately asked for the login keyring password (which happens to be the same exact password I just entered to log into the machine). This happens every time I boot the machine.
Is there any way to make it stop asking me for this login keyring password? I just don't get why I have to enter the same password twice.
The message is:
Code: The login keyring did not get unlocked when you logged into your computer.
I'm about to turn off the prompt for a keyring password at logon following these instructions. But I wonder whether I'm going to be losing anything in the way of security. To eliminate the prompt for the keyring password, am I going to miss out on anything? In other words, just what does the keyring do? If it matters, I don't use Evolution e-mail (I just use old-fashioned web mail). To my knowledge the only passwords stored on my machine are that for my wireless network and whatever website passwords my browser stores.
When I boot up my password is requested three separate times by the keyring. Sometimes if I have left my computer to boot up it will actually be requested four times. I get the impression it relates to start up programs, for example if I leave it so that it requests the password a fourth time, at the same time the wifi connection settings pop up requesting the wifi password. I remember having a similar problem before and I think I was able to set a program as always having access to the keyring once logged in, but I can't remember or find how to do this. The programs that are maximized on startup are; transmission, liferea. Docky and gnome-do are also arranged to load on startup.
When I used the LiveCD, it made me give it a password for the keyring, I made it lol, because it's a livecd session. After I installed, the wireless controller asked for the password again. I then changed it. When I installed Ubuntu previously, it didn't ask me for any of that, it just defaulted the keyring password to my user password or something like that and asked me if the wireless controller should have access ONCE. Now every time I boot I need to type the keyring password in again.
I'm asking this in the right place. I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and recently started getting a pop-up similar to the following at every boot up: Login keyring failed Your login keyring did not succeed. Enter login keyring here: That's not [exactly] what it says, but very similar. I should probably add that I have not set up any different 'user profiles' or whatever they're called, but am the only one using this PC...at least, at the present time. Again, this only started a couple of weeks ago and I don't know what I did to start it nor what to do to stop it. I guess it's not extremely painful to have to type my password in every time, but a PITA nevertheless.
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?
I have a FC10 installation with GNOME and NetworkManager and a wireless card. Everything works ok. However, when I try and setup gdm to do autologon I get the NetworkManager applet asking for the password for the gnome-keyring to get the wireless details. Since I want to use this machine as a sever this is unacceptable as I won't be around to type in the password. I tried the solution at [URL] but this does not work. I still get the password being requested and the keyring password is the same as the logon password. Can anyone say if there is a workaround that works to get the NetworkManager to be able to read the gnome keyring without having to prompt me for it.
I'm not sure if this is the correct section to ask this question, so mods please move if needed. This happens with a freshly installed Lucid 64 bit, 2.6.32-22-generic kernel. Each time I boot into the system I get prompted for my password: "Unlock Login Keyring
Enter password to unlock your login keyring The login keyring did not get unlocked when you logged into your computer." At first I thought it was the wireless network problem, so I already checked my wireless as "Available to all users", but this didn't stop the prompt. Doing a little bit more of research, if I cancel the dialog without entering my password, I can access the web without any problems (so again it is not the wireless connection problem), but then if I try to launch Gwibber I get the prompt again (two times actually, if I press Cancel the first time), or if I launch Empathy as well (three times in a row if I press Cancel; probably it has to do with the fact that I'm logged into 3 different accounts, facebook, gmail and hotmail?).
Furthermore, this two nice pieces of sofware offer almost zero configuration options to the user, at least GUI-wise, so there is no checkbox for "Available to all users" or anything simmilar for the matter. For instance, in gwibber I have spell-check turned on by default and there is no way to turn it off. So I guess I'll have to tweak some configuration file in some obscure folder,
