I turn the desktop PC off at night and turn it on next day . within several seconds it automatically has internet access via wifi .
there’s been a sudden change since 3-4 days ago. now, an authentication window pops up wanting a default keyring password - before network internet access can be enabled. once I type the password I still must confirm the password for the ssid in networking before it will connect. I don’t recall any major updates . I would like to have my auto connect back. could someone please explain this ; if anyone knows about it .
Its also worth noting that in many cases ‘autologin’ will break automatic keyring opening (as there isnt an authentication occurring) thus you have to unlock it with whatever first action requires the keyring.
I think it is the gnome keyring. I installed cinnamon DE . I only have 1 password ; I don’t know about keys, certificates etc . , that might need the keyring. I would just as soon not have it if possible .
hmmm, don’t know why it’s been working fine with autologin and now all of a sudden , there’s a change .
I guess I just don’t understand how all this works. I was autologging in just fine and then something changed recently and the keyring started popping up. anyway , I deleted the passwords in the keyring and now it’s worse. I understand a little better.
I explored/read some posts from your search term provided.
is there a way to remove / uninstall the keyring? I only have 1 password
for , let’s say my local linux/manjaro system. I do understand that my browsers have passwords - for sites , like say amazon and any other individual site ; and they save passwords ; but those passwords aren’t related / integrated with the keyring, right ? anyway why do I need a keyring password just to open chrome browser ?
