Opera 24 password mess -. how to do gnome keyring cleanup

  • Opera 24 for Ubuntu import all old wand passwords into the gnome-keyring. This works quite well, but it forgets to delete them after Opera uninstall.

    Also using a temp or second profile (user-data=) will import all passwords again. I ended up with up to 8 entries for one site and 1600+ entries.

    This python script can be used to clean the keyring:

    usage login opera-"local_profile_id"

    The "local_profile_id" you can find in the Preferences file in

    Clicking on the details tab of a password entry in the Password and Keys GUI of Ubuntu (seahorse) gives you the needed info application: opera-8735968
    Use login opera-8735968
    for cleaning the keyring. It will ask for confirmation, so you can cancel.
