Hello xfce community
This is my first time posting here, even though I have used xfce for years! Funny it took a milestone release for me to post here! ;D
Ok, so here is what I am trying to do. I have a stored secret in gnome-keyring-manager for my wireless network, that works fine under gnome itself and even kde. In the previous release of xfce4 you could get gnome keyring (and a few good gnome applets) working by just going into xfce4-settings-manager --> session and startup --> Advanced, and selecting "Launch GNOME services on startup".
This does not happen on startup, and I have verified that the checkbox is indeed checked. When I manually ran the 'gnome-keyring-manager' it reports that the gnome-keyring-daemon is not running. This makes me think that gnome services are not running.
I have no way of debugging this on xfce 4.6. Please help!
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 (RHEL)
Could this be a bug?
Nobody knows anything about this? I simply need some direction to look or go. :?
Here on xubuntu the gnome-keyring-daemon seems to be launched from dbus;
Maybe it's the same with fedora?
Maybe you can add
/usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon -d --login
to your autostarted applications?
I also had the same effect when using slim instead of gdm as login manager.
