I started using Linux lite 5.0 on my laptop last month. (I am fairly new to the Linux enviroment, just migrated from Windows 10).
So I installed Visual studio Code using snap and everytime I start it up, it asks to authenticate 'Default Keyring' until next reboot.
Is there anyway I can authorize it so I don't have to authenticate it everytime i reboot my pc?
(p.s the reason i moved from windows to linux is because my pc got hacked some weeks prior, so please consider security a major concern here)
Thanks in advance :)
This has nothing to do with visual studio, keyrings is a package in your system used to store your passwords read more about keyrings here
to solve your problem open gnome-shell and search: "seahorse"
open it and you will find all your keyrings setup, the default one is what you want, select it right-click to edit or delete it if you are not remembering the password
But NOTE before you delete it any configurations with this keyring "default keyring" will be deleted with it too
In GDM+GNOME, when you login, GNOME Keyring is automatically unlocked. However, it doesn't do so in SDDM+KDE. When you start some GNOME or Electron application like VS Code, they ask you to type the login password again.
The solution is to edit
/etc/pam.d/sddm and add
pam_gnome_keyring.so like this (the second line and last line):
#%PAM-1.0 auth include common-auth auth optional pam_gnome_keyring.so account include common-account password include common-password session required pam_loginuid.so session include common-session session optional pam_gnome_keyring.so auto_start
This is a solution that I found here that should work for you. For me, the lines were already there, but I simply had to remove the
- at the beginning of the lines.
EDIT: To edit the file, you'll need root privileges, so I did
sudo -e /etc/pam.d/sddm in terminal, edited the lines, hit CTRL+X, and Y to save.
