When I have ssh keys in ~/.ssh and I connect to a server like ssh -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa user@example.com, gnome-keyring-daemon prompts for my password with the GUI box as expected.

But, if I use a key that isn't in ~/.ssh, the GUI box doesn't come up, and instead it prompts me in my terminal.

I do not store my keys in ~/.ssh, so this is an issue.

How can I configure gnome-keyring-daemon to read and prompt the GUI box for keys outside of ~/.ssh?
