Enter password for to unlock your login keyring


When I trying to start my VPN connection, a dialog "Enter password for to unlock your login keyring" will appear to require a password, but I do not know which password should be used here, so I tried both the general user's and root's password, but both of them got a incorrect return.

But when I canceled this (skip the password entry), everything seems fine.

this never happened before. how should I get rid of this, it's boring!

Thanks in advance!

Since the last few versions of fedora, the users login password also unlocks the keyring. What version of Fedora are you currently using? Does this also happen when you try to connect to a secured wireless access point? It could something as simple as a grunged login.keyring file which is easily fixed but we need to know what version of Fedora.

Re: Enter password for to unlock your login keyring

Goto to your home directory then goto .gnome2/keyrings

You will have to select "view hidden files" from the view option to find the dot filenames

delete your login.keyring and any other keyring file, and reboot.

Re: Enter password for to unlock your login keyring

you enter nothing in the password bit, then it will ask proceed with unsafe storage etc.. this should only happen once.

Re: Enter password for to unlock your login keyring

I just ran into this awhile ago, but steps are semi-changed to get to your keychain:

Click Applications > Accessories > Passwords and Encryption Keys
Click Edit > Preferences
Click your keyring name (usually default)
Click Change Unlock Password
Enter your current password in the top box, but leave the bottom two boxes blank
Click OK
Click Use unsafe storage when you are prompted
Click Close

if you can't see your keychains, click "view" and check "by keychain"
