non-graphical login, how to start gnome keyring?

Hi, when I was using the default gnome for my desktop, I was prompted for my password when starting evolution, opera browser, etc. once per xsession.

Now that I am getting away from gnome I decided to try i3. Unfortunately, the gnome keyring does not get unlocked, I am not prompted for a password, and I can't use evolution email or opera or any apps where the userids or passwords are stored in gnome keyring.

Can somebody please explain how to fix this in the most correct way possible?

I did try the steps under "Using PAM"

And I also tried adding commands to the .xinitrc as suggsted on a ubuntu page. After rebooting and logging in again, nothing has worked so far.
