I have not been able to log in to keyring..I do not remember EVER having a Key Ring how do I establish a password?

Please provide a bit more information (Ubuntu version, when it asks for keyring password etc...) – the_Seppi Jan 20 '14 at 19:44

The first time the keyring manager runs it will ask you to enter a keyring password. This password is used to unlock your keyring / access the stored passwords in your key ring.

To reset your password see this post

It might be a good idea to mention that the keyring password is USUALLY the password that's set on your user account, whether you use the password to login or not. – Thomas Ward Jan 20 '14 at 19:21
@ThomasW. - or to mention that you sometimes have to update the password if you have changed your user password -… - user238017, Did you try entering your login password, or any previous ones? – Wilf Jan 20 '14 at 19:38
