notifier not starting in linux mint

Asked by henry on 2011-10-15

Here's what happens when I type gm-notify in terminal:

** Message: secret service operation failed: The name org.freedesktop.secrets was not provided by any .service files
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/gm-notify", line 237, in <module>
    cm = CheckMail()
  File "/usr/bin/gm-notify", line 72, in __init__
    keys = keyring.Keyring("GMail", "mail.google.com", "http")
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gm_notify_keyring.py", line 12, in __init__
    self._keyring = gkey.get_default_keyring_sync()
gnomekeyring.IOError

I'm thinking something related to a keyring package that I might've deleted, how do I get it back?

fixed it by installing 2 packages, one I deleted earlier:

 - libpam-gnome-keyring
 - indicator-messages for linux mint
