Add ssh keys to keyring manager

Asked by Klaus Bogotz

I created a keyring to access my server with ssh. This keys are stored by default in ~/.ssh. Is there a way to use the keyring manager to handle this keys?
Can I move an existing key to km?

Thanks in advance, Klaus

There is a program called "Passwords and Encryption Keys" available through Add/Remove Programs that is well-suited to manage your SSH (and PGP) keys.

The program's binary is called "seahorse" and the package too. I think this makes it easier to find and use for non-english users and CLI users. ;)

sudo apt-get install seahorse

I'm also currently trying to add my SSH keys to the gnome keyring.

Just to add a new answer and solution to my problem:
In the "Enter password to unlock the private key" dialog (which you only get if your keys are password-protected), there's a little "Details" section where you can check a box to "Automatically unlock this keyring whenever I'm logged in".
Check it and problem solved. :)

Can you help with this problem?
