Disable mate-keyring-daemon

Everytime I try to connect to GitHub via ssh, Linux Mint makes a pop up window asking for my password. It is really annoying. I prefer to use the tried and true ssh-agent instead.

To kill the keyring daemon:

# find out the PID
ps ax | grep mate-keyring-daemon  
kill -9 <PID>

To disable the keyring daemon from next startup: go to Preferences -> Startup Applications. Uncheck SSH Key Agent.
