Question Problem with "Enter password to unlock your login keyring"


Hi,

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04LTS.

I'm trying to configure my chat accounts.

But after entering username and password, it is asking "Enter password to unlock your login keyring".

I have entered my login password. But it is saying that "The password you use to log in to your computer no longer matches that of your login keyring."

What is this password and how to resolve this?

Thnx

Implies that at some point you have changed your original login password, so it no longer matches what is stored in your keyring.

To reset your keyring.

1. Go into your home folder.

2. Press ctrl & h to show your hidden folders.

3. Now look in your .gnome2/keyrings directory.

4. Find the default.keyring file.

5. Move that file to a different folder.

6. Once done, reboot your computer.

To re-hide your hidden files, follow step 2.
