Gnome keyring making some noise (solved)

Gnome-keyring is complaining on my Sid box about not to be able to connect to a socket. Actually it is/was a known bug. Apart from that everything runs perfectly, I see just this error message always when dist-upgrading or fetching LastFM info from ncmpcpp. Now my question is as I use Xfce, could I just get rid of this package or do I need it for something special/important? Not sure about that.

Re: Gnome keyring making some noise (solved)

machinebacon once said you could get rid of it without ill effects.  Personally I like how it does what it does so I've kept it, although I did once take it out.  I don't recall what happened but I changed back within a minute.  smile

Re: Gnome keyring making some noise (solved)

Ok, but what does it do actually especially on an Xfce system?

Re: Gnome keyring making some noise (solved)

I don't know, I just liked it better with it.  I think it helped with logging in and out as user and root but I've had to take some unusually strong arthritis medicine today and my brain is all soft and fuzzy now.  hmm

It stores encrypted data, like your wifi password for network manager and similar.

Hm, I do not use nm, I also think it has no usage on my system but am not sure.

Gnome applications mostly use it. If you don't have any that use encryption, you don't really need it.

Re: Gnome keyring making some noise (solved)

Thanks @el K. That is what I thought about but my memory was gone. That means I will remove it now. smile

Re: Gnome keyring making some noise (solved)

Removing the keyring helped me to get rid of the error message, great! Anyway I do not use any Gnome apps, just Fileroller.

Thanks!

Re: Gnome keyring making some noise (solved)

^ Have you tried squeeze from the Debian repo as a substitute for fileroller?  It worked real fine for me while I was using sid.

Re: Gnome keyring making some noise (solved)

^ I have it installed and i used it quite a while since I converted to Xfce but I prefer Fileroller, it has some advantages over Squeeze, if not I would still be using it. Somehow Squeeze is not always unpacking things correctly, I would say it is buggy. And interesting is that Fileroller runs better under Xfce than under Gnome.

Re: Gnome keyring making some noise (solved)

You just install all the extraction utilities (unrar, unzip, bzutils, xzutils), plus the wrapper unp, then you run

unp <archive>

Re: Gnome keyring making some noise (solved)

^ That's even a better solution.
