Openbox - Autostart gnome-keyring-daemon message.

To start the gnome-keyring-daemon in Openbox 3.5.2 (Ubuntu Vivid 15.04) I execute the following command in bash:

$ /usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon --start --components=pkcs11,secrets,ssh,gpg
which gives me the output:

** Message: couldn't access control socket: /run/user/1000/keyring/control: No such file or directory
The command successfully starts gnome-keyring-daemon.

$ file /run/user/1000/control
gives me the output
 /run/user/1000/keyring/control: socket
the file seems to exist.

Any ideas as to why gnome-keyring-daemon prints this message?

Thanks in advance!

I managed to solve the problem by adding

session    optional        auto_start
auth       optional
to the end of /etc/pam.d/login, and

password	optional
to the end of /etc/pam.d/passwd. Then finally adding a default login password (with the same password used when logging on the user) in seahorse. The default keyring is automatically unlocked upon logging in and gnome-keyring-daemon doesn't complain about not finding the directory.
