How do I find what program is activating the Keyring?


I'm getting that "enter password for keyring "default keyring" to unlock message, again. It went away when I uninstalled an off-brand browser. Some new program suddenly wants it - probably one I installed and didn't want anyway. Is there any way to tell what program is requesting it, so I can just uninstall it?

Chrome browser always launched it for me. I just put an empty password in it and keyring stopped launching.

KBD47, I loathe those keyrings with a passion.

I promise to give this a try.

Neither method in Help works for me:

••Click Start Menu > Accessories > Passwords and Keys (seahorse) from the repos. Right
click on Default Keyring > Change Password. Replace the password for the “Default”
keyring with an empty return. Details on use here.

Navigate in Thunar to ~/.local/share/keyrings/ and delete the network password. The
next time the dialog box appears asking for a new password, just hit return to store a
blank password.


First method wants my old password, which I don't know, to proceed.
Second method says to delete the network password, but all that's in the folder is
default Default_keyring.keyring and user.keystore. Which is the network password? I don't want to delete the wrong thing.

Then try this: uninstall "seahorse" if you're not going to use it:
Quote:
sudo apt purge seahorse
Then go to ~/.local/share/ (hidden file in your Home folder) and delete the whole keyrings folder. Reboot.

Thanks. That worked - finally rid of that awful thing. It was so annoying I thought I was back on Windows
