Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 616291
Login keyring isn't unlocked when using automatic login
Last modified: 2010-07-21 21:10:18 EDT
Description of problem:
In accountsdialog's Login Options I set Automatic Login: Mario, which is the only user on this fresh installation, but in every login, there is a dialog saying "Enter password for to unlock your login keyring. The login keyring did not get unlocked when you logged into your computer.", after I enter my user's password, the wireless network connects. If Automatic Login is disabled, it connects automatically without dialog. It would be really nice if the keyring were automatically unlocked because it'd be a no questions boot up experience.
[mario@localhost ~]$ ls .gnome2/keyrings/
default login.keyring user.keystore
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. store a secret in the default keyring (a network pw would be used at every login)
2. enable automatic login
It's easy to reproduce because if I log out when using automatic login, a new session is started immediately and the dialog appears.
no dialog and network should be connected
I will attach messages and .xsession-errors, please let me know if there's additional info needed.

This is not related to the accountsdialog at all. It is a problem with the way the keyring works. It is protected by your password. If you don't enter the password at login, it is not available to unlock the keyring.
I am going to close this bug, since there is not much we can do about this, realistically.
