How to disable the keyring for SSH and GPG ?

I would like to keep the keyring for the wifi and other stuff. I'm using Ubuntu 12.04.

First duplicate the file /etc/xdg/autostart/gnome-keyring-ssh.desktop into ~/.config/autostart/.

Then edit ~/.config/autostart/gnome-keyring-ssh.desktop in order to remove the following line:

NoDisplay=true

and to add the following line at the end:

X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=false

This should disable SSH management when you restart your session. To disable GPG, do the same with the file /etc/xdg/autostart/gnome-keyring-gpg.desktop.
