Password Keyring Duplicates
 
I am using Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick) X86 with a Netgear Wireless Connection and whenever I boot up I receive Two password keyring notifications to get on line. Is there a way of removing one of the duplicated notifications, because as soon as I enter my password into the first notification and press enter, I am on line. The second notification appears to do nothing.

Thanks.

Which display manager (gdm, kdm, ...) and desktop manager (gnome, kde, xfce, ...) are you using? I've only noticed that problem with an older kdm/kde release, so, if you're using that combo, see if you can update to the latest release.

In fact, make sure you're using the latest updates for 10.10 for everything, and then see if you still have the problem.

By the way, I believe the problem is related to the NetworkManager service and the applets that show its state on the desktop, and has nothing to do with your specific hardware. I think that, in one release of the applets, they did a NetworkManager restart instead of a NetworkManager start which popped the login box twice. (It also broke any connection that was established before the GUI started, like cifs wireless network connections started from /etc/fstab, which was not really very nice.

I seem to have solved the annoying problem by deleting the contents of the .gnome2 folder. When the passport window popped up on re-boot I left the it blank and clicked on enter ... I no longer have passport security login.
Thanks for the suggestions, I appreciated your help.
