Well, I’ve been getting annoyed by my Gnome-Keyring application. Basically what it is is a vault for all the passwords for your other applications, which is good in a way, its one password to remember for all the other passwords. However, its not that I don’t remember my passwords, its that I don’t want to have to enter them all the time, what this does is provide a pop-up asking you to enter the keyring password to allow it to use your password to say, download your emails.
It was quite annoying, so I checked out how to remove it, one option is to remove gnome-keyring which is fine, however the dependencies are pretty much the rest of my system, so I didn’t do that.
Whilst looking at what to remove though, I noticed gnome-keyring-manager, install that I thought, maybe it will allow me to configure the passwords to just work without asking for my keyring. Cha-ching, bonus found that this is even easier, when you first fireup keyring-manager it asks to add some keyrings from applications it is aware of, I set yes and always allow. Now I don’t get bothered all the time.
