Keyring questions


Hello...

My issue is this: I know everyone has a problem with evolution and expiring crediantials but my problem goes a bit further. I cannot even store the credentials in my keyring. :/ I am using XFCE and on login it doesn't even ask me to unlock my keyring. I am using a keyring that was generated from another OS but I did not think that it would matter. Maybe I was wrong. So... can I unlock it and store new credentials? If yes, how? And if no, what are the steps to create a new keyring that stores the proper stuff.

Thanks

Hi.

I set up my first key with:
Code:
gpg --gen-key
if that doesn't help you much maybe this... https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GNOME_Keyring

Best wishes and have fun.

isn't there a graphical utility to manage keyrings?
have alook in your menu.
or maybe you have to install it first.
