This looked promising too, but again nothing has changed.
System -> Settings -> encryption + keyring ==> "remember once you have
logged in" = no good
default key = "none, ask each time" -> there are no other options.
remember "pass phrase" yes / no etc. => none of the settings produces
System -> Administration -> Login screen behavior ==> set keyring PW
and Login PW to be the same = no effect
Each time I login, I am asked to enter the password for something that
"ubuntuone-client-applet" -> does this information maybe help finding a
solution to my problem?
I do not want to be rude or preaching anything like other OS are better
etc., but in my situation this being asked my PW

So, it could explode and would not cause any serious problems (except
THAT would be an awful waste of money).
That is why I don't need - don't want any password while I am
experimenting with Linux.
Having to enter a variety of different passwords every three minutes is
definitely NOT fun.
Is the only feasible way out of this really the necessity to reinstall
the entire system???
Sounds rather awkward to me.
