(This question was originally posted on AskUbuntu, but got no good answer: http://askubuntu.com/questions/217709 )
I have recently set up an Ubuntu box using Gnome desktop, and want to import data I have saved from an older Ubuntu computer. These data include a gnome keyring, which I (rather stupidly) copied the encrypted files instead of exporting.
What I did
cp -R ~/.gnome2/keyring /backup/gnome2_keyring
Given that I still know the session passwords I used for the corresponding user account on the old computer, what can I do to recover/import passwords/data from the keyring?
This is a home user question, and has to be done only once: I am not concerned with security problems: I'll wipe my free space afterwards and that will be enough.
