Reading from keychain failed with error: 'No keychain service available'

System:    Host: MyComputer Kernel: 4.8.14-gnu-1 x86_64 (64 bit)
           Desktop: LXQt Distro: Parabola GNU/Linux-libre
My owncloud client does not start automatically.
I know, nextcloud is what I should use, but I'm right now stuck with owncloud and I doubt that it solves the problem I'm having right now.

The error:

I have qtkeychain installed, but I'm not sure if that's a keychain service.

$ sudo pacman -Ss keychain
extra/keychain 2.8.3-1
    A front-end to ssh-agent, allowing one long-running ssh-agent process per system, rather than per login
community/envoy 14-2
    A ssh-agent/gpg-agent keychain and process monitor
community/qtkeychain 0.7.0-1 [installed]
    Provides support for secure credentials storage
I also have two keyring apps installed.

$ sudo pacman -Ss keyring
libre/parabola-keyring 20161215-1 [installed]
    Parabola GNU/Linux-libre PGP keyring
core/archlinux-keyring 20161201-1 [installed]
    Arch Linux PGP keyring

So I wonder what has to happen.

go to your keychain access preferences and "Reset Keychain". make sure there is no apps auto-launch at the startup. Then restart.

Where can I find my keychain access preference?


Solved by downloading gnome-keyring. I read that kwallet also works and that these apparently are the only two keyring backends.
