While trying out google-chrome dev and beta channels' latest version (25), I was getting a segmentation fault problem causing Chrome to crash, right after showing a message informing that it was unable to locate a .service file that provides org.freedesktop.secrets.service. This problem was solved by either adding the flag --password-store=basic to use un-encrypted passwords or by installing and starting gnome-keyring.

Is there an alternative to gnome-keyring to use with google-chrome (and optionally ssh-agent) in xfce 4.10?

As mentioned in the question, the problem is not chrome crashing (that, I managed to fix). The question is about alternatives to gnome-keyring. – Martín Canaval Feb 2 '13 at 5:27

GNOME Keyring implements the Freedesktop Secret Service standard. The only alternative that I know of is KDE's ksecretsservice. I'm not sure how complete it is; this is the code repository. It seems to be packaged in the experimental Kubuntu PPA.

Ow, KDE is really disappointing. I wanted to add support for this new API to kwalletcli and would have preferred using KDE’s client component there, as opposed to libsecret… but nothing there, the mailing list archvies are really sad… – mirabilos Apr 11 '14 at 10:59
