You have recently changed your user account password, didnt you?
This is what happend:
The "KeyRing" feature in Gnome is kinda like a "Vault" where credentials and passwords for apps are stored. Empathy, for instance, uses the KeyRing to store your IM's accounts logins and passwords
Each KeyRing (you can have several) has a "master password", which is initially set to your login password. That "opens the vault", ie, allows apps to store and retrieve their recorded data. You were supposed to give the apps this "permition" by entering your
keyring password each time an app request the KeyRing a stored value.
(thats what happening to you now)
- So, as long as your
keyring passwords are the same, theres no need to do that, Gnome do it for you. Both passwords match, apps get their permition to store and retieve data without disturbing the user.
(thats what used to happen to you)
- But, since you changed your
user password, but not your
keyring one, now they dont match anymore, thus you are requested to input your
keyring password for Empathy
So, to restore the previous behaviour, one thing you must do is change the keyring password to match your user password
Do that for both
default keyring. Or, better yet, if you dont care losing all the passwords stored in the
default keyring, just delete it. Apps may ask for credentials one more time, but you will have to give your (now synced) user password only once.
And check if the newly-created entry has really made it into the
login keyring. If another
default keyring is created again, then we will have to investigate further.
