This messagebox has just started. How to get rid of each time I boot?
Did you recently change your password? I have found that once your login password and keyring password do not match - it prompts you. Or do you have autologin enabled? Then it will also prompt you.
The only other thing I can think of is that for LightDM, the keyring must be named
Keep an eye on this one; I had settings as user/autologin but system changed it; not me hence I didnt check. (surely nothing to do with grub-install?)
No, its happened again, autologin is no longer sticky - it checks, but next boot unchecked.
Beware many places might be used to set session autologin :
At left is « settings / details / users » at right is « lightdm login screen » ( or whatever its localized name, look for lightdm in your app menu it should pop up ).
Modifications made on one side may override the other.
When I started using Chrome on other distros, this bug occurred. However it’s never happened on UB so I don’t know why you are seeing it.
Two things; the user panel doesnt show user as standard or admin which it should?
I tried to set autologin via bash:
sudo nano /etc/gdm3/custom.conf
There is no custom.conf
There is no gui lightdm but perhaps that you installed it at another time.
UB uses lightdm - not gdm3 - so this doesnt work
Its in the menu - “Login Window”
You set the user to autologin via that (Users tab)
Lightdm doesnt use dconf. It’s in /etc/lightdm somewhere but cant remember the exact file off the top of my head.
Im just wondering; are you sure the messagebox is a login box?
I am not sure what you are referring to. The user field on the login window is the correct way to set autologin.
If it isnt working for you then I would suggest you should reinstall to clear any odd configuration tries you have done.
Note. The keyring issue is expected … autologin bypasses the normal authentication and the keyring has to be manually unlocked.
You can set a valid keyring password via seahorse.
That did it thanks I had to install seahorse and enter a blank password.
Sorry, but the old reinstall windows thing does not work for this user.
I did say - and will continue to say - this is development.
However if you aren’t willing to occasionally reinstall from both ISO and the series upgrade process then you are not really helping us test.
