Any way to change the Gnome Keyring password?
 
I'm looking for a way to change the master password of the Gnome Keyring. I know the current password, but, I'd like to change it to a new one, and I haven't been able to find anything conclusive on the topic. Does anyone know how to go about doing this?

I'd post system details, but, honestly, they aren't important.

I think that at the moment, you will have to kill the daemon (killall gnome-keyring-daemon) and delete your keyrings (~/.gnome2/keyrings), then start over. There is no mechanism to change the password.

Thank you. That really works.

To choose a new password for keyring login, open Accessories>>Passwords and Encryption Keys, or System>>Preferences>>Passwords and Encryption Keys. Under the password tab, it is not necessary to expand the password folder, but doesn't matter either way.
Right click on the word "login" where it says "Passwords:login."
A menu opens, the last item is "change password."

Thank you spiderbatdad! Your way is certainly better than deleting ~/.gnome2/keyrings
