Keyring Issues

If you are using an application, e.g. GitHub, and you get an error because of your “keyring” then a quick workaround is to find that keyring and push it out of the way.

Open a terminal and use the find command as such:

     $ cd
     $ find . -type f -name "*ring"

Now push that file out of the way. We do not remove this file because some other app you used it with or agreed to add the key to your keyring may need that information at a later time and we may want to recover that key. For now we just rename the file to push it out of the way and stop causing us problems.

     $ mv ~/.local/share/keyrings/login.keyring  ~/.local/share/keyrings/login.keyring.OLD
