I am on Ubuntu and I have forgotten the password for my Gnome Keyring (yes, stupid me, I know). Any way I can get it back? I have already looked at this link, but it says it's not possible if my home directory is encrypted and unfortunately my home directory is encrypted.
Resetting everything (delete all passwords and start new keyring):
Navigate to Places > Home. Press ctrl h to view "hidden files". Navigate to .gnome2 > keyrings and delete
Using the same keyring (resetting keyring password but keeping old passwords in keyring):
1) Make a backup of the keyring
and after that delete
2) Create a new keyring file from Gnome Keyring with the name "login"
3) Replace the new keyring file with the backup of the old keyring file
Note: before Ubuntu 12.10 the path to the keyrings folder was
Next time Ubuntu will ask for a new password for the keyring.
