Does that mean anybody with physical access to my machine could reset the password and read the encrypted contents of my home folder? No, home encryption is linked to that password so if I stole your computer and changed the user password, I wouldn't be able to easily (more on that later) decrypt the data. That said, access to recovery mode means ...

This answer is a variation on the guest1000's solution, but I don't have enough rep to create a comment. Anyway, adding the following to ~/.bashrc also works and seems cleaner to me: export GNOME_KEYRING_CONTROL=$(ls -d /run/user/1000/keyring-*)

This is a change made from v12.04 and not an actual "bug," and should probably go to the "developer suggestion box" than in a support forum. Thanks anyway, people.

Using wildcards in the sudoers file In the sudoers file, you can use wildcards (*), thus creating the possibility to run a script with arguments. An example I tested it with a shockingly simple python script. In the sudoers file I had to use the absolute path to python: /usr/bin/python in the line of the sudoers file: jacob ALL=NOPASSWD: ...

Go to System Settings > User Accounts. Make sure to press Lock / Unlock in the upper right corner of the window. Then you can use the switch to enable Automatic-Login.

Here's how to delete your current gnome keyring: rm ~/.local/share/keyrings/login.keyring That should work, but I'm not entirely sure what all will be effected though. You could try & save the old keyring with instructions from here though I'm not following step 2 "create a new keyring", might mean to use seahorse - other users suggest that seahorse ...

Use full disk encryption instead. And limit physical access to your machine. If someone has physical access to your machine, they could simply steal your disk and take it elsewhere to eventually break the encryption as well.

About Ubuntu only... If it really is full system disk encryption (dm-crypt/LUKS/cryptsetup style) then there is no quick or easy way to remove the encryption. Maybe start up & decrypt, copy unencrypted info to new disks as a new "system", then run the new system only, but that's about the same as reinstalling, and harder than just using a live cd/usb to ...

Go to Settings, Users, then you unlock your user. After that you turn off the option to enter automatically in your account. I think that is that, 'cause my Ubuntu is not in English. Hope that it solved your problem.

for those really using gpg-agent, you can forget passphrases with: echo RELOADAGENT | gpg-connect-agent

mysql-workbench is looking for the GNOME_KEYRING_CONTROL environment variable. If you are the only one using your computer, that variable should have a value similar to /run/user/1000/keyring-XXXXXX. I had a similar problem with mysql-workbench package downloaded from dev.mysql.com (because MariaDB and Ubuntu's mysql-workbench package are incompatible) and ...
