The password is normally your user-password. If you are not using auto-login and the keyring-password and user-password are the same, you are not asked about the keyring-password anymore

If you set a blank keyring password you won't be bothered for the password.

Where do you change the keyring password? I can't find it anywhere.

Steve Clarke (clarkesj) said : #4

I am using ubuntu 12.4

In dash search for 'key' and you'll find it. Not obvious enough?

Steve Clarke (clarkesj) said : #6

No, don't like the dash. Give me a (dare I say) windows programs list any day. I can see what I have then.
Thankyou though, that fixed the problem.

Same difference. Please mark as solved

Can you help with this problem?
