Authentication Popup asking for Password - no one accepted

Hello,

I tried to install the Virtualbox Extension Pack and was asked by a small system popup (keyring?) for a password. I tried mine as well as “manjaro” but nothing worked. The install was cancel therefor.

Any hints? Thanks in advance!

The exact details would depend on which keyring it would be.
If it is the gnome keyring, you’ll need to change the keyring password. You can do this using seahorse, by right-clicking on “default keyring”, and selecting “Change Password”.

Alternatively, you can remove login.keyring and user.keystore from /home/{username}/.local/share/keyrings/ . Be warned that this will permanently delete all saved keys. After removing the files, simply log out and log in again.
