I have encountered a cacophony of bugs on Ubuntu 18.04.1. I believe the reasons for these bugs must be multifarious. However, I think one is definitely the recent update of Ubuntu I installed.

In order of discovery:

  1. My computer asks for my login twice. My credentials are taken, but the original login screen is encountered and I must enter my credentials a second time. I found this post that gives a workaround for the issue, which is to log in under Ubuntu on Wayland, but it does not SOLVE the issue.
  2. Upon successful log in I receive the "the local keyring did not get unlocked when you logged into your computer" error. It is not related to launching Chrome (many users have this issue), but rather as soon as I log in to the Desktop.
  3. I cannot always open the terminal. Logging into Ubuntu on Waylands seems to be a workaround to this issue as well.

Update I was able to get on the Terminal using login through Ubuntu on Wayland. I used sudo apt-get upgrade and sudo apt-get update. After restarting I was prompted to reset the password for the old keyring and a new keyring was added. I also found that chrome's remotedesktop was either partly or entirely to blame for the issue from a different post (I cannot find) and so uninstalled it from my computer and my browser and this seemed to solve the issue.

  • Interesting that you suspect chrome remote desktop. I recently started seeing this same issue and when I read your post I realized that I had recently also started using chrome remote desktop. That at least points me in the right direction. Thanks for that! ;-)
