  • Hello

    I am using Linux Mint 19.2 with Cinnamon.
    I configured it to start at logon
    When Opera tries to start, it triggers the prompt to read the Default Keyring with Gnome Keyring.

    Does someone know why ?


  • It is because opera has to open gnome-keyring in order to get the passwords it has stored in it.
    You have 3 ways to solve it

    a) Make opera NOT use gnome-keyring, by launching it like so
    opera-developer --password-store=basic

    b) Make gnome-keyring's password blank (kinda dangerous if you store other stuff on it too, e.g. it stores the credentials for my samba server here), like so

    c) Don't store credentials on the browser at all. Go to
    and set every sub menu under autofill (passwords, payment methods and addresses and more) to not save anything

    Solutions a and c will erase all your stored passwors obviously.

  • Thanks for the reply

    I thought Opera used its own store because of the synchronization.

    Thanks for the explanation
