    Hi,

    we are currently testing NoMachine on our Linux Terminal Server. It is a lot faster than xrdp, which we normally use. However, unlike xrdp or lightdm, NoMachine does not automatically unlock the GNOME keyring when a user opens a new virtual session. This causes a lot of confusion, as many employees do not understand why they suddenly have to enter a password when they open their e-mail, for example, and don’t know that their keyring password is their normal login password.

    Is there a way to make NoMachine unlock the GNOME Keyring automatically? Using the same pam configuration file that works fine with xrdp (it includes

    auth optional pam_gnome_keyring.so

    session optional pam_gnome_keyring.so auto_start

    does not work with nx.

    Hello,

    currently NoMachine virtual sessions don’t support pam_gnome_keyring functionality.
    We’ll evaluate whether it’s possible to add support for it, but at a glance it would mean making architectural changes, which means adding such a feature isn’t as easy as it looks.
