	I was really pissed when some stupid software asked me to provide the
password for a Key Ring so I could start my computer! It got worse when
there were two Key Rings that needed passwords! That was when a kind
person on this list suggested Wicd.

	Now All my computers are using Wicd to start. As a fact to this date I
attest that Wicd is simply worlds better than Network-Manager. It is
faster and far less trouble.

	Back to Seahorse. I can only start seahorse from a Terminal. I have
never seen it on Applications or System or places. Not at all sure where
to look on KDE. I have a KDE 8.10 and may look for seahorse.

	But then came Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) and I was able to just get a
good free version from the Ubuntu repositories done by the GNU. Then I
was at a qwandry because I didn't know how it worked. I was directed to
some EXCELLENT PDF books I d/l and read.

	One said to get on seahorse and view your Key Rings. I was about to be
sick, but when I did start seahorse it was perfect. It showed me my
system Key Rings and all the Public Key Rings I have collected. This is
what Seahorse was written for! It is great for PGP.

	I will keep looking for a tab that loads Seahorse. I have learned to use:

$ seahorse &

because this lets me have the Terminal back...
