Google Chrome, XFCE, KSecretService
 
I am using XFCE and whenever I run google-chrome KSecretService pops up and asks to create a username and password. Regardless what I do this always pops up.

I have tried disabling KDE Wallet/gnome-keyring and other related services everywhere I know how yet I can not get around this pop up every time I open Google-Chrome.

How can I disable this or keep from this pop-up everytime I load google-chrome?

Even if I enter a username and password it still pops-up and half the time it creates an error in google-chrome which says I do not have permission to read my own profile.

I have this problem with Slackware 14.0 stock, though I didn't used chrome that much. However, didn't experienced this with Slackware 13.37.

Yeah it's very annoying. I was having issues with KDE so I switched to XFCE which I really like but I just can't seem to stop KSecretService.

smooth103,
If you're liking XFCE, maybe just remove KDE altogether.

"slackpkg remove kde"

should do the trick.

no problems with google chrome, xfce and vanilla 14.0 here ... 32-bit though

ooops sorry - almost vanilla, kernel 3.7.1

Why not just un-install the Ksecrets package? It has been removed since the KDE 4.9.x series.

I just removed KDE. I suppose removing KSecrets would have been the practical approach. In either event, it's solved! Thanks.

You know I've always loved KDE but it has just gotten wildly too large and cumbersome. It tries to do too many things in my opinion and the quality of what those things do has gone down a tad. Honestly, I've started to wonder whether it makes sense as somewhat the default option in Slackware considering its simplicity/KISS "philosophy." Of course it's only an option it does not harm to include it. I'm not criticizing anything about Slackware because I love it -- but rather asking the question if, at some point, will KDE find itself in the opposite direction of slackware?

I agree with what you say. Slackware64 has been installed on 4 laptops here, all to try to wean users from Windows. KDE was chosen as the substitute, but
the 'users' are complaining that the machine starts up too slow.
The time to get to the KDM login screen from Lilo prompt is 58 seconds
The time to get to KDE desktop from KDM login is 45 seconds.
Now I'm an 'old guy' that still uses fvwm, and nothing beats that for lean
mean speed :-) so I'm not used to KDE but I think to have to wait over a
minute is ridiculous.

Am I right to assume that only KDE and XFCE are suitable substitutes for the MSwindows interface? How does XFCE compare in terms of speed?

Simply enable gnome-keyring-secrets in xfce autostart.
