Bug Description

Since https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-keyring/+bug/1271591 was 'fixed', gnome-keyring no longer provides ssh-agent services

Observed behaviour:
ssh $host no longer opens up dialog window requesting the ssh key passphrase

Test:
$ echo $SSH_AUTH_SOCK

Result with gnome-keyring 3.10.1-1ubuntu4.1
<no output>

Result with gnome-keyring 3.10.1-1ubuntu4
/run/user/1000/keyring-w5uhoK/ssh

Downgrading the package works to gnome-keyring 3.10.1-1ubuntu4 restores the desired behaviour.

Yes, this is a dupe of bug #1387303

this was resolved in vivid in 3.10.1-1ubuntu9 and needs further SRUs into trusty and utopic.

This does not appear to be a duplicate of #1387303. That bug is "gnome-keyring components can't be disabled", where as this one is "gnome-keyring doesn't work".

In any case, gnome-keyring 3.10.1-1ubuntu4.2 does not fix this issue, so this bug should be re-opened.

They are all related.

Can you please open "Startup Applications" and check that "SSH Key Agent - GNOME Keyring: SSH Agent" item, and is it checked / unchecked?

If you want GNOME Keyring ssh agent, it should be checked, then logout and log back in.
