I remember dealing with that in Mint. Removing it entirely with the package manager worked for me. Worthless piece of software.

I managed to get it 'fixed' but what did you remove with package manager? I wouldn't call it useless in a less locked down environment but I'm an end user on a home network. Would like to know what the package is that you removed and in which version of LM.

It was in LMDE Xfce. I just searched for Gnome-Keyring and unclicked anything that had Gnome-Keyring in the name. The process should be the same in Mint or Ubuntu I imagine.

What drove me nuts is, they included it in the Xfce version. I suppose it serves some purpose. It just seems to me that there are better methods of security they could deploy. Less annoying ones at that.

In Debian I can remove gnome-keyring by executing:

sudo aptitude remove gnome-keyring

Aptitude wants to remove also:


which is a bit disturbing, but if you agree this actually won't remove the gnome environment (I rebooted and logged with gnome-session, everything seems ok), because this three gnome related packages are metapackages (they group other packages, so it's easy to install the whole gnome environment).

I am running Debian-testing with LXDE desktop, with some gnome and xfce4 applications. I was trying to run an application with wine, but it showed error that gnome-keyring couldn't connect to some file in /run/user/username/keyring-xxxx/ folder. I do not know where gnome-keyring has come from but wajig package manager shows that it is installed. Can I just uninstall gnome-keyring or will that cause some major problems to the system? Thanks for your help.
