I just installed Linux Mint 17 xfce and I've been searching the net to disable "login keyring" but I can't find a working solution.
I have done this before with Ubuntu by deleting a certain "keyring" file but I can't seem to make it work with this distro.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers!

[ubuntu] Unlock login keyring

For Ubuntu and it probably is the same for you....

 

In order to remove the Unlock Login Keyring dialog set the password for the keyring to an empty password. This prevents being prompted for a password.


  1. Open Applications --> Accessories -->Password and Encryption Keys
  2. Right-click on the "login" keyring
  3. Select "Change Password"
  4. Enter your old password and leave the new password blank
  5. Press ok, read the security warning, think about it and if you still want to get rid of the Unlock Login Keyring dialog, choose "use unsafe storage"

BUT....are you sure you want to do that?

EDIT: More discussion/ info on Mint password here: How to Get rid of the login keyring password - Linux Mint Community

From that...one could think there is a bug...

Thank you buddy. I'll try that.
And yes I am sure about disabling it. I know it has a purpose but Linux isn't really my main OS.

Cheers!
