I am using fedora29 Cinnamon on a typically-outfitted home computer.

Every time I start my favorite browser (Chromium), a box pops up that demands that I enter my password to unlock the default keyring. I'm pretty sure this happens on other occasions too, but this is the one I see most often.

I don't know what my password is, so I'd like to know how to change that password to something I DO know. The box is very persistent, asking me again and again, and refuses to be put away (like cancelled with the"x" button in the left upper corner.)

Chromium eventually starts up anyway, but I have to minimize the "enter password for default keyring" box. It just stays there. Nothing can make it go away.

Thank you for reading this post
