I think I may have done this before. I wiped my password from other platforms such facebook etc. That's no problem since I have them saved.

It also allowed me to to launch chromium without the keyring dialog.  But let's test it out for a few days before marking this down as solved.

Thanks for your input PCNetSpec.

Today first startup and I got that keyring dialog box again. So it is NOT fixed. Forgive my ignorance but I always thought chrome  is an abbreviation for chromium. Did not realize they had branched into different products.

Do you think it is worth trying your solution,  PCNetSpec? If so, can you send me the step by step guide?

Thanks

Okay I'm lost here, is the problem with Chrome or Chromium ?

Have you got your system set up to autologin ?

Believe you me, I am even more lost. The problem has been with Chromium.  Version 61.0.3163.100

Wouldn't you know it, the problem has disappeared now. It is NOT asking me for a keyring. Let's test this out a few days before remarking it as SOLVED.

Thanks

Hi guys, my earlier diagnosis was premature.  I am still getting the keyring request each time I start up Chromium. I just tried to implement scifidude79 solution. But the command line kept saying it does not recognize google-chrome. Then I tried Chrome on it's own. Still could not recognize. Finally I tried chromium. Still could not recognize program.  So now I am at a loss.

Would appreciate your further thoughts.

Can any one help me with this old and well known issue. Every time I load chrom I get this. How can I make it go away permanently?

Cheers

Hello, I had to go ahead with this before hearing back from the experts here.

It was a very convoluted process. Many thanks to alynur for clarifying why I use seperate partitions.

it for same reasons I used to separate a single drive into C and D using windows. Alas, I did this before I saw Slim's tutorial. So I currently have 20 gigs allocated for the / even though at the moment it is using only 7 gigss. and the rest (150 gigs) allocated to /home. So, are you saying this does NOT separate system from personal files? i remember several times in the past when I had to wipe the system without having to format or overwrite the /home partition and it worked just fine...?

One thing I did not do and Slim's tutorial shows should be done, is to create a /boot partition to store grub in. I learned this the hard way as you will see here.


So first I tried to use the boot disk as suggested using Gparted to edit the / and /home partitions. That  screwed up my GRUB. I did not have any tutorial or knowhow  to edit the grub prompt. So I ended up wiping the system with a fresh install.

On reboot I had to disable quiet splash in favor of NOMODSET usual only to end up with  desktop  without a taskbar or a menu popup or terminal. Nothing. This was the main reason I jumped from Mint 18.1 to Peppermint 7 (inability to get a taskbar). So I tried installing Mint 18.2 and it worked. So I am assuming the developers have not quite got around to providing a simple solution nvidia issues.


I would love to reinstall Peppermint again as soon as nvidia issues become as simple as other video cards or I get to grips why I was not able to get a taskbar.

But the main reason for installing Peppermint has been the pleasure of working the support here which is awesome. I wish the Mint and other distros had as responsive a support as yours.  Please keep up the good work especially PCNetSpec. Slim's tutorial on partitioning is fantastic. I would appreciate it if you let me know the difference between this method and just seperating / and /home.

I hope you will allow me to seek your support from time to time in the future.

Hi Slim, I was looking at some tutorials which was suggesting I can boot into a live CD and use gparted or partition magic to edit the partitions. Is that along the lines of what your talking about?

Otherwise I might just as well go for a clean reinstall since most of my data is already on the cloud.

Sorry about the mistake. sdb6 is my / partition with 88 gig free space. And sdb5 is /home with only 2 gig to spare.

So is there a way I can edit partitions to allocate more space from / to /home?

I think sdb5 is my / partition and sdb6 is /home

Hi, I am at my desk if you have any suggestions for FF.

BTW, having moved my docs and thunderbird to pcloud sync folder has rended my hard drive freer. Thunderbird is also behaving fine.

Yes, it looks that way. Now I should not have any space problems. If you remember I could not save any drafts when it was on the local drive.
