Keyring keyring Go away come again another day
 
Hello all, I am running Debian 6.0 on the 2.6.32-5-686 kernel and would love to know more about turning off the keyring manager.

I get prompted to enter a password into my keyring whenever I connect to wifi, and many times when I check my email, and sometimes when doing other tasks.

To make along story short, the keyring is the most annoying fucking component that has ever been installed in gnome. I don't need a master password, I can remember my damn passwords just fine.

What is even more irritating is that I disabled the keyring startup daemons and removed my default keyring file... but to no avail, that stupid prompt keeps coming back from hell to haunt me.

Please oh please dear Linux gurus what am I to do?

Don't use autologin, and enter your password just once. The keyring stores your password for use when it has to be used, but if you don't log in with a password, it doesn't have it. The keyring isn't going away, so deal with it, preferably in a logical way. Or you can go back to Windows. Your choice, and nobody else cares either way.

If I wanted to bend over and stick my head up my ass I wouldn't have posted to the forum.

There has got to be a way to remove the keyring- Because if I hit cancel on it I still have to enter in my passwords and I can continue. If I enable it I still have to enter in my keyring password everytime. So really, it does absolutely nothing. There is no way that this dingleberry feature is not removable. :mad:
