fedora 28 - gnome default keyring not opened on login

Since gnome 3.28 has finally gotten support for ed25519 keys, I decided to properly use the gnome keyring. I added the following to my .bash_profile:

export $(gnome-keyring-daemon)

to set the SSHAUTHSOCK variable. This works fine in gterm sessions, but I now get

the login keyring did not get unlocked when you logged in to your computer

everytime I login. The login password for my account is the same as the keyring password. This is not autologin, I type my password everytime I login. I was under the impression that if the password was the same, the keyring would be automatically unlocked.

There is only the login keyring, I even went into the "password and keys" app and changed the password (to make sure it was the same as the login password), to no avail.

How can I get the keyring automatically unlocked by my login? I run gnome under wayland.

Try this:

Enable "Certificate and Key Storage (GNOME Keyring: PKCS#11 Component)", "Secret Storage Service (GNOME Keyring: Secret Service)" and "SSH Key Agent (GNOME Keyring: SSH Agent)" in Session and Startup (Application Autostart).

You can unlock gnome-keyring at log-in time, but that requires an additional pam module gnome-keyring-pam. Only the pam module as access to your login password.

I would expect that the gnome environment will do everything needed to make this work automatically.

Do remove the line export $(gnome-keyring-daemon) from .bash_profile.
