I forgot my password for the root account in an Ubuntu Desktop machine. I came across a tutorial that guided me on how to reset the password by booting from the installation disk and mounting the filesystem as RW, then using passwd. Everything went fine but, everytime I login, there has been this warning that the login password and the keyring password are no longer matching. This is what I did to solve this.
- Go to the dash and search for
"passwords and keys"
- Run that app and right click on “
Passwords:login"under the “
- Click on
- logout and then log back in
- Verify: Your keyring password is now replaced with the new password
Thats it, no more password mismatch!! This had given me a headache and the suggestion to delete the file
.gnome2/keyrings/default.keyring" left me wondering, coz I dont have such a file…
Hope this helps someone who hates annoying warnings.
