I followed the guide here: http://www.webupd8.org/2011/06/encrypt-your-private-dropbox-data-with.html

to get dropbox encfs working on my first computer. I disabled the syncing of the encryption key. so I copied it manually from the 1st computer to the 2nd computer.

By the time I had time to get this setup on the 2nd computer, I had forgotten the password I entered for encfs.

How do I remove the password from the keyring on the 1st computer before I create another key and store it in the keyring on the 1st computer?

  • What distro are you using and which Desktop (KDE, GNOME, etc.)? – slm Apr 29 '13 at 21:41
  • The 1st computer is running debian wheezy gnome classic (fallback). The 2nd computer is running ubuntu 12.04 unity3d. – oshirowanen Apr 30 '13 at 7:47

Not positive about GNOME 3.x but in GNOME 2.x you can get to the "Passwords and Encryption Keys app" (Applications -> Accessories -> Passwords and Encryption Keys).

From here you can manage passwords, keys, etc.
