- gnome-keyring-daemon [OPTION...]
The gnome-keyring-daemon implements the DBus Secret Service API, and you can use tools like seahorse or secret-tool to interact with it.
The daemon also implements a GnuPG and SSH agent both of which automatically load the user's keys, and prompt for passwords when necessary.
The various startup arguments below can be used:
Ask the daemon to only initialize certain components. Valid components are
By default all components are initialized.
- Use this directory for creating communication sockets. By default a temporary directory is automatically created.
- Run as a real daemon, disconnected from the terminal.
- Run in the foreground, and do not fork or become a daemon.
This argument tells the daemon it is being run by PAM. It reads all of stdin (including any newlines) as a login password and does not complete actual initialization.
The daemon should later be initialized with a gnome-keyring-daemon --start invocation.
This option implies --unlock. It may not be used together with either the --replace or --start arguments.
Try to replace a running keyring daemon, and assume its environment variables. A successful replacement depends on the
environment variable being set by an earlier daemon.
This option may not be used together with either the --login or --start arguments.
Connect to an already running daemon and initialize it. This is often used to complete initialization of a daemon that was started by PAM using the
This option may not be used together with either the --login or --replace arguments.
- Read a password from stdin, and use it to unlock the login keyring or create it if the login keyring does not exist.
- Print out the gnome-keyring version and then exit.
- Show help options and exit.
