    Default Gnome Remote Desktop - Vino asking for password


    Hello all,

    I'm trying to use Gnome's built in remote desktop viewer, Vino, to
    remote to my PC. When I use the vnc client on another computer to get
    to my OpenSuse 11.1 box, it lets me type in a password and pauses. If I
    look at the screen on my OpenSuse box it is waiting for the gnome
    keyring password and it wanting it for vino-preferences. It
    specifically says:
    The application gnome remote desktop (/usr/bin/vino-preferences) wants
    access to the default keyring but it is locked.

    Does anybody know how to bypass needing the password for this? I'm not
    sure how to begin to figure this out. I've been a longtime Fedora user
    and vino worked fine there so I don't think this is the way it is
    supposed to work.

    I'm having exactly the same problem....

    Kind of defeats the object of having remote desktop really

    Once it's been entered, it will work until i have to reboot the system,
    but seeing as i want it to be a headless fileserver hidden away it's a
    pain in the butt at the moment.

    I've searched high and low for a solution too. There's about 3 or 4
    seperate posts with people having the same problem, but nobody's ever
    got back to them

    I'm new to all of this, so I'm hoping it's just me being stupid and
    overlooking something really simple!

    I've submitted a big report for this. I seem to be able to find a load
    of posts all over the net with people having the same problem but no
    replies or suggestions. Also there's no existing bug report filed so
    made sense to do one...

    I'll update with any feedback I get
