       gnome-keyring-daemon - The gnome-keyring daemon


       gnome-keyring-daemon [OPTION...]


       The gnome-keyring-daemon is a service that stores your passwords and secrets. It is
       normally started automatically when a user logs into a desktop session.

       The gnome-keyring-daemon implements the DBus Secret Service API, and you can use tools
       like seahorse or secret-tool to interact with it.

       The daemon also implements a GnuPG and SSH agent both of which automatically load the
       user's keys, and prompt for passwords when necessary.

       The daemon will print out various environment variables which should be set in the user's
       environment, in order to interact with the daemon.


       The various startup arguments below can be used:

       -c, --components=ssh,secrets,pkcs11
           Ask the daemon to only initialize certain components. Valid components are ssh,
           secrets, pkcs11.

           By default all components are initialized.

       -C, --control-directory=/path/to/directory
           Use this directory for creating communication sockets. By default a temporary
           directory is automatically created.

       -d, --daemonize
           Run as a real daemon, disconnected from the terminal.

       -f, --foreground
           Run in the foreground, and do not fork or become a daemon.

       -l, --login
           This argument tells the daemon it is being run by PAM. It reads all of stdin
           (including any newlines) as a login password and does not complete actual

           The daemon should later be initialized with a gnome-keyring-daemon --start invocation.

           This option implies --unlock. It may not be used together with either the --replace or
           --start arguments.

       -r, --replace
           Try to replace a running keyring daemon, and assume its environment variables. A
           successful replacement depends on the GNOME_KEYRING_CONTROL environment variable being
           set by an earlier daemon.

           This option may not be used together with either the --login or --start arguments.

       -s, --start
           Connect to an already running daemon and initialize it. This is often used to complete
           initialization of a daemon that was started by PAM using the --login argument.

           This option may not be used together with either the --login or --replace arguments.

           Read a password from stdin, and use it to unlock the login keyring or create it if the
           login keyring does not exist.

       -V, --version
           Print out the gnome-keyring version and then exit.

       -h, --help
           Show help options and exit.
