In chromium, in function os_crypt::SelectBackend()¹, when GNOME is detected, the backend is SelectedLinuxBackend::GNOME_ANY, which is documented as "GNOME_KEYRING or GNOME_LIBSECRET, whichever is available". This piece of code doesn't seem to automatically fall back to the basic (unencrypted) password store, like the regular login/password storage functionality does.
This can be overridden on the command line though, with "--password- store=basic" (and thus doesn't require the connection of the password- manager-service interface). ¹ https://cs.chromium.org/chromium/src/components/os_crypt/key_storage_util_linux.cc?sq=package:chromium&l=30 -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1763829 Title: [snap] chromium won't start after logging in to google account To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/chromium-browser/+bug/1763829/+subscriptions -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
