Description of problem:
after first opening of SMB share in nautilus, I can't find how to
change the so called "default keyring" (in french ï¿½ trousseau de clï¿½s
par dï¿½faut ï¿½.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.open "nautilus smb://ns/commun/ (my share)
2. enter key once
3.try to change key after a new login
Actual Results: can't find how/where to change key
I'm not sure what you mean? Did the password on commun change? If so,
it should just ask you for the new password if the stored one didn't
work. What is it that you want to change?
The first time I tried to open my SMB share in nautilus, on the SMB
server, I gave a password, not a samba password, and could'nt open the
share after rebooting without giving this password again. It's OK now:
I removed ~/.gnome2/keyrings/default.keyring.
Nevertheless, couldn't gnome-keyring be disabled?
disable? Its an important, heavily requested feature?
You didn't even reply to my questions.
This is the way its supposed to work:
a) if you choose to save the password, it'll be saved for later use if
the login succeeds
b) if you have a saved password, that will be tried first when connecting
c) if that doesn't work, you'll be asked for the password as usual.
(None of this requires removing default.keyring)
What part didn't work for you?
Sorry, I didn't reply because I didn't undestand your questions. I am
no good at samba. I only use it on a very small private, non routable
(192.168.1.) network. I don't know what you mean by 'if you choose to
save the password': samba password or keyring password? Just remember
I only want to access the share on the samba server; the windows part
is OK now (Sorry for my poor english).
Aha. So you created a keyring, made up a password for it and forgot
the keyring password?
No: I did remember the keyring password, but I would prefer not to be
asked for any password, as it used to be in FC1.
Why did you ask for it to be saved in the keyring then?
Because when I was asked for a samba password, which is empty, I first
thought that saving it in the default keyring would imply that I would
never be asked again.
Thats whats supposed to happen. Although you will be asked for the
password for the keyring (as the saved passwords are encrypted), but
the keyring can contain many passwords.
