Re: [Evolution] evolutio forgets my passwords every start

I too have two keyrings - 'login' and 'default' - all my passwords are
in 'default' and I get asked for a password every time I start up Gnome
- so I thought I would do a bit of reading ...

It appears that unfortunately the PAM Gnome-Keyring integration will
only unlock the 'login' keyring - what is supposed to happen is that
when any other keyring is unlocked there should be a tick box saying
"Automatically unlock this on login" and then the password to this
keyring is stored in the login keyring and automatically used when the
keyring is needed in future. Needless to say, this doesn't happen for

Just to follow up to myself. 

I logged out of gnome and went to .gonme2/keyrings and renamed
'login.keyring' to something else, and then renamed 'default.keyring'
'login.keyring' and changed the contents of the file 'default' to read
'login'.  When I logged back in to gnome, it all worked properly - no
multiple prompts.

So the answer is to have the 'login' keyring as your default and have it
contain all the keys you need.  Then, so long as PAM is setup properly
you will be able to unlock the keyring at login and not enter any
passwords multiple times.
