Use With GNOME

I'm running GDM and Gnome and running into issues with getting gnome keyring to offer to save and automatically unlock ssh keys. Currently the article seems to indicate that this would just work, but that is certainly not the case. Could anyone elaborate on how to get this to work? Is it expected that users still add the keyring daemon launcher routine to their rc files in order to enable keyring support for ssh key passwords as mentioned in ? --Bret (talk) 05:18, 24 September 2015 (UTC)


"and make them available to applications." ... how do you use it?(firefox?) What applications are supported? the gnome page unclear as usual...Jasper1984 (talk) 11:39, 25 August 2012 (UTC) Edit: modification made to add it. Jasper1984 (talk) 11:50, 25 August 2012 (UTC)

Use Without GNOME

Is it still necessary to start a separate dbus sesssion? Isn't dbus normally automatically started by the other system components?


It is possible to use GNOME Keyring without the rest of the GNOME desktop. To do this, add the following to your ~/.xinitrc file:
# Start a D-Bus session
source /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/30-dbus

Hi, you're right! Dbus should now be started automatically.
I've removed the bit about dbus in that section.
