Fix for “Current Password No Longer Matches Keyring”

A I may have mentioned, I recently reinstalled Ubuntu (had been using Windows 7 for a few months). Since the reinstall I had changed my common login password for the other computers on the network so of course I updated my user password for the new install.

The slight problem came when I used any application that accessed the keyring (say, network-manager), as there was a password mismatch between my credentials and the keyring. This was because I preserve my /home partition to keep my data (a good practice) and that is where the keyring data gets stored (logically). But it got tiresome to frequently see:

“Enter password to unlock your login keyring. The password you use to login to your computer no longer matches that of your login keyring”

It’s dead easy to fix though.

  1. Go to Applications -> Accessories -> Passwords and Encryption Keys
  2. Right-click on Passwords: login
  3. Select “Change Password”
  4. Enter your old login password (the one that it repeatedly asks for!) in the old password bit, and put your current login password in the new password fields.

And that’s all there is to it!

An Old Video (FEAR – Stolen Kills)

I’ve been posting a fair number of videos to another blog for the folk I play games with (including the other MIA author of posts on this blog Kenny). It’s a good way to relive some moments and also a way for me to practice my cutting and splicing skills.

Long story short, I encoded an updated version of a video I created about three and a half years ago. The old one was small resolution and tiny bitrate. This version is full (source) resolution and a relatively insane bitrate.

FEAR – Stolen Kills (pop-out player if you have JS enabled, non pop-out version here)

Synopsis: I shoot Kenny in the back (with friendly fire on) and I’m rewarded with two kills. Obviously a sounds strategy!

Playing The Steam Version of Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis

As someone who still has the original floppies for Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis (or IJatFoA, it’s easier that way), I thought I’d give the Steam version a whirl. I picked it up (along with The Last Crusade) probably when it was on sale as part of a bundle.

My initial thoughts are: “what have they done to the music?”, “since when did the characters have voices?” and “this is a lot simpler than what I remember playing as a 7 year old”.
