I have recently forgotten password for my jabber account, which doesn't have any simple way to reset it (e-mail only). I have this password stored however on gajim on one of computers I use (I have root access). Gajim stores the password with gnome-keyring. What is the simplest way to obtain this password?


There's a very interesting blog post from Michael Schurter with a Python script which extracts all passwords from the keyring, which is basically the same functionality which is achieved via Seahorse.

The comments are also pointing to a little Pyhton application called gkeyring, which does the same thing.
