I use GNOME 3, for better or worse. I noticed today I can't ssh into my remote hosts anymore.

When I type ssh-add on the terminal I get:

Could not open a connection to your
authentication agent.

If I type seahorse-daemon I get:

** (seahorse-daemon:24656): WARNING
**: Could not load desktop file '/etc/xdg/autostart/seahorse-daemon.desktop':
No such file or directory

If I type rpm -qa | grep seahorse I get:


I'm lost. This is beyond me. I'm used to this just working. Help?

Hi Mairin, I guess you tried to open the file /etc/xdg/autostart/seahorse-daemon.desktop that seahorse complains about (but it seems this is just a warning). Any relevant output if you run journalctl -b ? Did you also tried to kill the seahorse-daemon, and launch it back.

Hey baptistemm, I couldn't figure it out and had to ssh to a remote host, so I ended up rebooting and that fixed it. If it happens again I will try journalctl -b.
