where is the keyring manager on ubuntu 13.04
Hi !

I have a encrypted partition which is mounted by nautilus when I click on the proper device on the left panel. When I do that it ask me the pass-phrase and it give an option to forgot it immediately or to use it until the end of session or forever.

Usually I choose "forgot immediately", but last week I made a mistake and choose the option to store the password forever. Now The encrypted partition can be open with a single click on it. No passwords are asked anymore.

I want change it. I want the pass-phrase would be asked again every time I open the encrypted partition.

How to do that ?
I have a lot of passwords saved in the keyring, so removing "~/.local/share/keyrings/login.keyring" is not an option.

thanks in advance for any ideas,

Press the Dash icon, the top left icon. Type in the search string "key" or "pass" and see if you get a hit. If you do, you should see a keyring icon with the words "Passwords and Keys". If not, go to the Ubuntu Software Center and enter "seahorse" to initiate a search, as that is the program manager for the passwords. You should see the words "Passwords and Keys". That's the extent of my knowledge.

Yes! Thank you Steve R.!
It is seahorse the name of program the I can use to manage my passwords! A right click on the proper entry and selecting delete solved the problem.
