Saving password (and user ID) is offered, saved in pw protected keychain, but after reboot and starting epiphany from terminal a warning is displayed when I go to a web page requiring user ID and pw. The information is not filled in, I have to type it again (then it asks if to save this. OK, It looks like something is wrong with socket and pipe/
Tried strace or dmesg but no hint on what is failing. Searched the web and found an Archlinux instruction for installing epiphany.
The solution was to install “gnome-keyring” in order to make passord and user ID saving feature work. Now things work as expected.
My suggestion - and I don’t know what is the proper channel for this:
(1) include a comment, or better yet, check if gnome-keyring is installed, in the “Preferences” screen for Password saving section to make sure gnome-keyring is installed otherwise that functionality is not available, could not be set.
(2) Also include a similar comment in the project web site web - epiphany, Download or Install section that gnome-keyring package needs to be installed for full functionality of epiphany web browser.
