I'm sorry, but that ISO is already gone.
You can, however, create the file on a clean install and get the same result:

Code: Select all

mkdir ~/.local/share/keyrings
echo 'login' > ~/.local/share/keyrings/default
apt install chromium
chromium

I've already done that.

- Manually creating the file after install works. You just have to reboot before opening chromium.

- Manually adding the skel directory and default file and creating a new user, reboot, open chromium also works. As long as lightdm doesn't forget to open the login.keyring (which it sometimes does upon relog, thus reboot in between).

- The only thing I haven't tested is whether it works for the first user upon install.

I booted the live ISO and verified that only ~/.local/share/keyrings/default existed and had "login" as contents.

That's the problem. After reboot and login pam and lightdm should have created the login.keyring. This keyring has to be there and open for chromium to use. And upon creating a new user this works. Why not for the first user?

Anyway, I agree with grizzler that no password is a no-go. Adding the default file in /skel doesn't make things worse if it just gets overwritten but has the chance to make things better if pam/lightdm feel like it. (note to self: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... ug/1689825) Also it makes it easier for us to help users who encounter the problem - just tell them

Code: Select all

sudo cp /etc/skel/.local/share/keyrings/default ~/.local/share/keyrings/default
sudo chown user:users  ~/.local/share/keyrings/default
So I'd say, add the directory with that one file to /skel.

Agreed. The 'default' file isn't in the way.
