downloading peppermint

no luck with this one
on peppermints site it says they “don’t recommend connecting automatically” and if you do, a keyring password request will pop up.
i deleted connection but when i re stalled connection the only key i had to give was the router key,

It hasn’t popped up on mine ???

Do you want to try fix the keyring password AND keep auto login ? (see fix below)


Disable the auto login ? (if you’d rather have to enter your password each login, let me know and I’ll tell you how)

To fix the wireless “keyring” password

If you haven’t already … do whatever you have to do to get a working wireless connection that prompts you for the "keyring"password every time you boot … boot, and enter your keyring password so you are connected.

Then open a terminal and run this command:

mv -v ~/.gnome2/keyrings/default.keyring ~/.gnome2/keyrings/default.keyring.old

Expected output from that command =

'/home//.gnome2/keyrings/default.keyring' -> '/home//.gnome2/keyrings/default.keyring.old'

If that command runs without error … REBOOT.

When your system restarts, you will be prompted by “Authentication required by wireless network” … enter your WEP or WPA key, and click the “Connect” button.

You will THEN be prompted to “Choose password for new keyring” … leave BOTH fields BLANK, and click the “OK” button.

You will then be warned about “Store passwords unencrypted?” … click the “Use Unsafe Storage” button.

You should not be prompted for a keyring password for wireless again. :slight_smile:
