    Another way is to remove the old keystore.

    killall -9 gnome-keyring-daemon
    rm -fr ~/.gnome2/keyrings/
    

    reboot the computer sudo init 6and then on the first prompt to enter a new keyring password, i.e. when starting empathy or NetworkManager,simply press enter, a warning appears asking Use insecure storage?, press enter one more time. From now on, you won't be asked about passwords anymore. And yes, this is insecure; if you are paranoid, don't do it. enter enter
