OpenSSH verbose log

Description of problem: When using LXDE OpenSSH won't try all ssh keys to login to the other computer.  When using GNOME I don't see this behavior.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): openssh.i686                         5.6p1-31.fc15.1 

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to connect to server using crypto login.
Actual results: OpenSSH attempts to use id_rsa and id_dsa but none of the other keys such as id_rsa.4.

Expected results: OpenSSH attempts to use any key available.

Where you have the keys stored? Are you running the ssh-agent?
Comment 2 eric@christensenplace.us 2011-06-10 16:19:24 EDT
Keys are stored in ~/.ssh.  AFAIK, ssh-agent is working.  I can immediately go to GNOME and all works as expected.
Comment 3 Tomas Mraz 2011-06-13 03:04:10 EDT
The reason is that Gnome does not use ssh-agent but gnome-keyring in the ssh agent role. Gnome-keyring does this 'try all keys in .ssh' behavior.
Comment 4 eric@christensenplace.us 2011-06-13 11:32:16 EDT
So how do you fix this behavior?
Comment 5 Tomas Mraz 2011-06-13 12:43:01 EDT
There is nothing to fix. You can probably run gnome-keyring instead of ssh-agent in LXDE (I am not sure about that.) if you like this behavior so much.

Or you can add the keys by ssh-add <filename> with some script.
