Gnome Keyring and NetworkManager
So, when you first connected to your wireless network, Gnome-Keyring asked you a password. And being the security conscious person you are, you gave a good, strong password.
Great! But now every time you log in, you have to enter the password for the keyring. Worse than entering the password for your network everytime, right?
Fear not, tis easily fixed. In your home dir (/home/user_name) there is a folder called .gnome2. To see this folder, in most file managers, you can just click Ctrl+H, or click View>Show Hidden Files.
Inside .gnome2 is a folder called keyrings. And within that are you keyrings. The one you need to delete is probably called default.keyring, or login.keyring.
Delete that keyring, log out, and log back in. You’ll need to enter your network’s password again, but this time, when prompted to give a keyring password, leave the box blank, and click Unsafe Storage. Accept the warning, and that’s it, you’ll never again be asked for a keyring password 🙂
