After updated to Ubuntu 11.10, I am always prompted to "Enter password to unlock your login keyring" in power-up. I don't know what happen on my machine!

Enter password to unlock your login keyring

One of the un-recommended solution is using a blank login password.

Steps to set login password blank (for Ubuntu 11.10):

- Start "Passwords and Keys": enter "password" in Ubuntu launcher, the application "Passwords and Keys" will come out.
