Background: I'm planning to switch from a CentOS 6 workstation to one running Fedora 17. Some things are different. I have questions.
[pdurbin@beamish ~]$ cat /etc/redhat-release Fedora release 17 (Beefy Miracle) [pdurbin@beamish ~]$ echo $SSH_AUTH_SOCK /run/user/pdurbin/keyring-Nq4yQX/ssh [pdurbin@beamish ~]$ ssh-add Enter passphrase for /home/pdurbin/.ssh/id_rsa: Identity added: /home/pdurbin/.ssh/id_rsa (/home/pdurbin/.ssh/id_rsa) [pdurbin@beamish ~]$ ssh server1.greptilian.com
A pop up appears:
Enter password to unlock the private key
An application wants access to the private key 'pdurbin@beamish', but it is locked
() Automatically unlock this key whenever I'm logged in
I click "Cancel" (twice) and see this back on the console:
Agent admitted failure to sign using the key. Agent admitted failure to sign using the key. firstname.lastname@example.org's password:
For now, this is my workaround:
[root@beamish ~]# cd /etc/xdg/autostart [root@beamish autostart]# grep Exec gnome-keyring-ssh.desktop Exec=/usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon --start --components=ssh [root@beamish autostart]# mv gnome-keyring-ssh.desktop gnome-keyring-ssh.desktop.disabled [root@beamish autostart]# reboot [pdurbin@beamish ~]$ ssh-add Could not open a connection to your authentication agent. [pdurbin@beamish ~]$ exec ssh-agent bash [pdurbin@beamish ~]$ ssh-add Enter passphrase for /home/pdurbin/.ssh/id_rsa: Identity added: /home/pdurbin/.ssh/id_rsa (/home/pdurbin/.ssh/id_rsa) [pdurbin@beamish ~]$ ssh server1.greptilian.com Last login: Wed Jul 11 09:57:51 2012 from dhcp-0164953481-93-7f.client.fas.harvard.edu [pdurbin@server1 ~]$
The problem with this, however, is that I have to run
exec ssh-agent bash and
ssh-add every time I open a new terminal window!
Unfortunately, I'm suffering from this problem:
F17 cursor crazy - https://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/users/2013-February/431969.html
http://major.io/2013/08/24/get-a-rock-solid-linux-touchpad-configuration-for-the-lenovo-x1-carbon/ makes me wonder if this has something to do with my settings at /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf or /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-wacom.conf
The former says, "Some devices have the buttons as part of the lower edge of the touchpad. Pressing a button moves the cursor, causing cursor jumps and erroneous clicks." I'm definitely suffering from similar problems. Before making any changes, here are my current settings:

Strangely, it almost seems related to being plugged into power... if I touch and hold my finger on the touchpad while plugged into power, the cursor oscillates. When I unplug from power, the cursor is more stable. As of this writing I'm on Fedora 20. I don't see this behavior when I reboot into Windows.
I wonder if this is related. I do have a Lenovo ThinkPad X220 Tablet: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Touchpad_Synaptics#Cursor_jump
"The original configuration renders the touchpad quite useless, as it behaves very jumpily." -- https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Lenovo_ThinkPad_X230#Touchpad
"Using Ubuntu 12.04, 64-bit version, installed on Lenovo X220 laptop. Fresh "default" install and settings configuration. When the laptop is plugged into a power source, the touchpad's onscreen cursor (the white arrow that shows position) shakes excessively when trying to use the touchpad to control the cursor." -- Bug #1028617 “Cursor shakes violently when connected to power so...” : Bugs : “xserver-xorg-input-synaptics” package : Ubuntu - https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-input-synaptics/+bug/1028617
