Stop Gnome Keyring Prompt For A Password

Keyring in Gnome.

What is Gnome Keyring Manager

GNOME keyring manager stores passwords such as WEP into an encrypted format that can be used over and over again when required by the user.

Bring on Libpam-Keyring

There is hope yet! :-) the libpam-keyring library can stop GNOME Keyring-manager prompting for a password when you access your protected wireless network. Install libpam-keyring by doing the following command in the terminal:-

sudo apt-get install libpam-keyring

Open the the gdm file:-

gksudo gedit /etc/pam.d/gdm

Add the following line to the end:-

@include common-pamkeyring

Save the file and exit. I should also point out that your GNOME Keyring-manager password MUST be the same as your log on (root). To ensure this go to the GNOME Keyring-manager at the “System > Administration” menu and delete your keyring, so nothing exists and reboot. You should now see no password prompt for your wireless network ;-).
