Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubuntuone-client

If gnome-keyring is not installed ubuntuone-client-applet will not be able to connect with Ubuntu One.
Clicking connect from the icon's menu yields the following error:

** (ubuntuone-client-applet:32668): WARNING **: couldn't communicate with gnome keyring daemon via dbus: The name org.gnome.keyring was not provided by any .service files.

After installing gnome-keyring connecting worked as expected.

Hi Jonathan,

I'm assigning this to Rodney to look into since he handles a lot of the packaging dependencies with regards to the Ubuntu One client.

Thank you,

Surely this is not an issue in Ubuntu, but in one of the variations where it is not installed by default? It also looks like python-gnomekeyring needs to have a Depends rather than the Suggests it currently has for gnome-keyring. It looks like libgnome-keyring0 does do Recommends: gnome-keyring, which is better than Suggests, but should probably still be Depends...

Not sure we should actually do anything in the ubuntuone packages here.

In Kubuntu (10.04), you could install ubuntuone-client-gnome. However, without gnome-keyring-daemon started (or even installed):

$ ubuntuone-preferences
** Message: secret service operation failed: The name org.freedesktop.secrets was not provided by any .service files

$ gnome-keyring-daemon
$ ubuntuone-preferences
$ # after this the preferences starts up with no problems
