Password free for watching media


Hi,

Having just installed Mint 15 Cinnamon, I have set up PC to access shares from a windows server. I'm trying to make the use of this PC so simple a monkey could do it.

kids want to watch media from the server; without having to enter passwords. I have the user account set to automatically log in, but I keep getting asked for a "keyring" password.

How do I stop this?

thanks
Tanya

If the Mint box is asking for a keyring password, try running the command with sudo and NOPASSWD.

These may apply to your situation...

apparently, you can de-install gnome-keyring but it may leave your system in a vulnerable state (vulnerable from user abuse/misuse)
