    default password !!!!!!


    a big holler out to all da linux experts ....


    am facing a lil issue here with UBUNTU 10.10

    i jus managed to install it ,,

    nd i only set one password during installation : ie : login password .

    now whenevre i connect to wifi .. or use da inbuilt chat function....

    as i enter the password..... i am asked for default password ...

    i read a few forums . they advised to change to password in "password & encryption key" to BLANK


    but it then says that the original password is incorrect ...

    i never did set an original password ..

    is there someway to detect this password nd mk it blank ..

    Your post is hard to understand.....chat, WIFI, login password, default password...which password are you referring to? Can you please explain clearly, what you are trying to do? You shouldn't leave any passwords as "Blank", that's just bad form.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.

    I think OP is talking about the gnome keyring

    most passwords for stuff like wifi are stored in the gnome keyring, you shouldn't need to touch it at all

    There is no default password. At first use, you create a password, or can leave it blank. If you delete the config files, next time you open something that uses the gnome-keyring, you can set it up again.

    Code:
    rm ~/.gnome/keyrings/login.keyrings
    rm ~/.gnome/keyrings/default.keyrings
