I disabled autostarting of both ssh & gpg agents, but kept PolicyKit
Auth. agent autostarting.
I wonder if or for what would I need gnome-keyring?
The problem is that afte launching Xfce session I see the following
output for 'ps ax | grep agent':
2173 ? Ss 0:00 /usr/bin/ssh-agent /usr/bin/gpg-agent --sh --daemon
--keep-display --write-env-file /home/gour/.gnupg/agent.info-atmarama:0 /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
2174 ? Ss 0:00 /usr/bin/gpg-agent --sh --daemon --keep-display
--write-env-file /home/gour/.gnupg/agent.info-atmarama:0 /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
2212 ? Sl 0:00 /usr/lib/polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1
so I wonder who/what is launching the agents?
Moreover, I also see gnome-keyring running:
28512 ? Sl 0:00 /usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon --daemonize --login
28842 ? S 0:00 /usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon --start --foreground --components=secrets
and also wonder who start it?
Moreover, when I try to kill gnome-keyring, logout, then re-login,
keychain invokes askpasswd dialog for both ssh & gpg, but the login
process does not finish and I'm thrown back to lightdm screen.
Inspecting X.org.log I found stuff like:
[ 23750.839] (EE) systemd-logind: failed to get session: PID 28341 does
not belong to any known session
but I'm not sure whether this the reason of not being able to start Xfce
This happens when I configure keychain to kick in for interactive shell
When I tried to setup keychain to fire on login session then right after
entering passwd in lightdm dialog, I get askpasswd helpers for ssh & gpg
agent, but, same as before, launching of GUI session is not completed, Xfce4
session dies and I'm back to login manager (lightdm) screen.
I'm *very* happy with Xfce and want to stay with it, but, otoh, need
working ssh agent when logging to remote servers as well as gpg agent
considering I'm signing my email and commit messages.
I'm optimistic that keychain (which has support for gpg-2.1.) can me
made to work, but it looks I'm simply missing some details not being
familiar enough how gnome-keyring and agents are started under openSUSE.
