I upgraded to Ubuntu 18.04 and I find a very annoying "feature" when I commit in
git which was not present in 16.04 with Unity. I have
gpgsign enabled and everytime I commit in git it opens a modal dialog box where I have to insert the GPG password.
As someone who values my security I keep all my passwords in a KeePass database which is conveniently not usable when this uselessly modal dialog comes up.
How do I stop Gnome from creating a modal dialog when asking for passwords?
I want to be able to copy&paste my password from KeePass when the dialog asking for password is already shown, and even better be able to search my KeePass db for the correct entry (i.e. I should also be able to type inside KeePass).
It's a real waste of time having to cancel whatever operation, then copy the password and having 10 seconds to repeat it before the password gets cleared from the clipboard. Especially when I try to commit from an IDE since when selecting files it does not stage them which means if I forget to copy the password right before clicking on commit I have to reselect all the files/portions of files to commit.
BTW: I do not want to use the GNOME keyring. I want to be able to use KeePass. Is there a way to do this in Gnome or do I have to uninstall
ubuntu-desktop and install
