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 https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GNOME_Keyring#Use_without_GNOME.2C_but_with_a_display_manager ? --Bret (talk) 05:18, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

place of default keyring
I could not find any documentation on where the keyring-file really is. Turns out that its directory is
Using the keyring outside GNOME with a a display manager (SDDM) =
From the article it seems that the keyring (no matter how it is called) is automatically unlocked by SDDM if the password matches the login password. Also it seems that it is not necessary to modify /etc/pam.d/sddm. Is this correct? This seems not to happen with sddm 0.17.0. Is this a bug? —This unsigned comment is by Simgunz (talk) 08:23, 2 July 2018 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!
xinitrc method does not work
The method described for
.xinitrc does not unlock the keyring. A comment on This reddit post suggests the PAM method must be used in conjunction for it to work, but this wiki proposes the PAM method as standalone. quequotion (talk) 06:13, 10 October 2019 (UTC)
Is the --start step still necessary with the dbus service installed by the package?
The --start step section of the wiki mentions:
> If you are not using GNOME, Unity, Mate, or Cinnamon as your desktop environment, initialisation will not complete automatically. You can fix this using various methods:
However, the arch gnome-keyring package installs a dbus service at `usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.gnome.keyring.service` which runs the daemon's --start process. Is this --step requirement out of date? --Yonson (talk) 18:36, 23 July 2021 (UTC)
