Question Zorin 12


Not sure if this is a good place to discuss this OS or not, but I'm completely frustrated and don't know where to turn! Tried to join a Zorin forum online, got all the way through except for the part where they're supposed to send me an email to authenticate my registration -- never happened, though I asked time and time again to have the email resent. Anyway, I have a ton of questions, and being completely unfamiliar with linux, I thought I'd try here. For example, I can't past the screen that says "Enter password for keying 'Default keying to u..... An application wants access to the keyhing 'Default keying, but it is locked', and it asks me for a password. I have NO idea what the password for this thing is! "Automatically unlock this keying whenever I'm logged in" is checked. I'm stuck! Help?

Can't help much with the other forum.

As far as the Keyring problem, open a terminal and go to the directory with the command:

Quote:
cd ~/.local/share/keyrings/
You should have a few files there. There may be a file called 'login.keyring'. There should also be a 'Default_keyring.keyring'.

You can try deleting the Default file, and the login file. The keyring function gets called by an application for storing passwords.

I got fed up with the Gnome keyring and disabled it completely. You can google for a how to if that is what you want. The files you delete will get re-created. Normally you would create a password you know, and once done, the automatic function should work.

Let us know how it goes.

When I entered the command you showed, I got quote No such file or director unquote. What would happen if I completely deleted the whole keyring thing? Can I do that? Please remember, I am a COMPLETE NOVICE! As Sgt Shultz used to say on Hogan's Heroes, "I see nothing, I hear nothing, I KNOW NOTHING!"

See this link, it show you how to disable the keyring. It is not necessary to delete it.

https://askubuntu.com/questions/3045...e-keyring#3048

I don't use Zorin, I don't know if you are forced to use sudo as the link suggests, or if you can su to root, and run the command.

The command I showed in post 2 assumes you opened a command prompt in your home directory, the "~" character is a short form of /home/yourusername/. Note also the . ( period ) before local. That . makes local a hidden directory. You need to enter that command from your home directory, and don't leave out the period. You can use cd ( change directory ) one step at a time, or the full path as I showed.
