Re: Automating pam_keyring...

With pam_ssh installed and a small tweak to /etc/pam.d/gdm (similar to
what you do to use pam_keyring), you can enter your password once and
be done.  That is, at the gdm login screen you enter your username and
password and your ssh keys get loaded.  This requires your login
password and the password on your ssh key(s) to match.

That requirement isn't something that should be encouraged, though,
IMO. There's a reason that ssh uses passphrases.
