Uninstall gnome-keyring

Asked by Anca Emanuel on 2012-04-12

I installed Chromium browser. Then I am asked for a password every time I launch Chromium.

I think that gnome-keyring is an unusefull program, an I purged it. But it uninstalled Ubuntu Software Center.
Why the f... it depends on it ?

What ARE you smoking ? now apt ?

the keyring isn't just for the browser. it's also for nautilus accessing shares, graphical ftp clients, email clients, network managemer and other applications too. i suggest you keep it.

I don't store ANY passwords on my computer EXCEPT for my admin/login password. I don't like having one program with control over any and all passwords. I would much rather have a password program built into the OS that was just for accessing the OS and directly related OS functions. A seperate password program that could be used to save passwords and login info for other functions as the user wished should be an OPTION not manatory. Having all your eggs in one basket and almost no control over it does not seem like a good system to me and diffinetly NOT in the Linux tradition. I would diffinately like to see the current "Keyring Access" go away and seperate systems like I noted above replace it.

Can you help with this problem?
