Issues after installing gnome-keyring

hey, after some time i really got annoyed by having to enter my password for minecraft every time, because of something it wouldn't save it, some post said i should install gnome-keyring, it asked for a password, i set one, i started minecraft again, the keyring wanted to be unlocked again, so i did, then minecraft wanted the account password again and that every time i started it, so no use in that, now i got to do two passwords and for the first one the system does like a soft lock of everything, need to spam esc for good 5 seconds every time now, anyways, removed the package and now it still asks for a password, how do i remove that? here's a picture of the promt

There are some vague information in my opinion, e.g.:

And your inxi -Faz is missing...
I think you use KDE Dr460nized, so I wonder if the first "something" was KDE Wallet
If so, I would remove gnome-keyring, going back to KDE Wallet and you could read:
and apply the tip to unlock KDE Wallet.

welp the encrypted drives are missing but that shouldn't be a problem, don't ask me how they did not get in here tho, also because of some issue with kde wallet the first thing i did was to remove or disable it, can't really recall what i did, but i know for a fact that i did something against it
also, i do not want a workaround to make the wallet work, i want it gone and to not prompt me for a password for a database that should have been deleted

Let me :duck: :duck: :walking_man: it for you :wink:
All the first hits seem to suggest getting to the function to change the keyring password (tbd how, e.g. just search keyring in the application launcher), enter the old password and leave blank the new one.
Just like the KDE Wallet tip.


there is no such thing, according to my launcher

Search also for "Passwords" and have a look also here:

nothing there either, but again, i do not want to fix the issue with the wallet not working, i want the wallet gone and with it that weird promt for the password

After a quick search, it seems gnome-keyring is required, even if KDE provides kwallet, due to the management of libsecret.
Maybe try reinstalling gnome-keyring and check if you can then change your password to blank.

okay. again. i don't want to keep that personal keyring thingy as a seperate password manager, i already use one, instead i want it gone and to not ask me again, because if i need a password to automatically log me into something, it defeats it very purpose. it is still asking for a new password now, at the very least it should use my existing password manager, pass for it so i don't need to store a password for a password manager

This is what I found.
More than that I cannot go.
I hope someone can help further.

If you feel the assistance you have received on the Garuda forum has not met with the standards you demand, then by all means feel free to take your requests for assistance to Reddit (or elsewhere).

Forum assistance is provided 100% by volunteers. This is not a paid support platform. Your expectations are out of line for a completely free distro with support provided by volunteers. Perhaps you need to rethink your attitude and expectations if you wish to continue asking for help here.


what about change the User and Permissions from Minecraft, so your normal User could Start it without the needing of a Password ....

i know that most linux support services are run by volunteers, but that does not mean i need to reconsider my attitude because of i asked for a answer to my problem, because of what i received was something not relevant for me

Tbg read my mind and was able to politely report concepts that I might not have been able to report due to disappointment.
You can't treat like that people who are trying to help for free.
And it wasn't just an airy-fairy concept either. Maybe that wasnt the solution, it doesn't always come on the fly.
That Minecraft post seemed to me to go in that direction.
Not to mention all the I want I want.
What you want isn't always what you can do.
Again, maybe it is, but you can't consider someone who tries to help you "a wall".
And I am not speaking as a moderator.
