I'd like to run the owncloud applet on startup. Here's a snippet at the end of my i3 config:

exec --no-startup-id gnome-keyring-daemon
exec --no-startup-id owncloud &

I'm using gdm as my login manager. Upon logging in, I get a dialog box which reads:

Enter password to unlock your login keyring
The login keyring did not get unlocked when you logged into your computer

If I enter my login password again, the owncloud applet starts fine. But what do I need to do to automatically unlock my keyring so that owncloud has access to it?

It turns out you do not need to run gnome-keyring-daemon in your i3 config (on Ubuntu 14.10, at least), as something in the login manager will start it for you. When I removed the line from my config, owncloud would start up just fine, and no longer ask me for my password.
