Gnome Keyring

Some applications (e.g. element, proton-agent, etc) stores they credential using the Gnome keyring. Follow that we need to install gnome-keyring package.

By default the keyring prompts for password as soon as an application using it requires to unlock the keyring.

We can unlock the keyring on login using the same login credential by adding a couple of pam_gnome_keyring.so entries in the /etc/pam.d/login file.

Refer to the 3.1 PAM step in the Arch linux GNOME keyring docs [here](https:// wiki.archlinux.org/title/GNOME/Keyring).
