Bug Small problems with Hub v.3 on Linux

    1) why do I need to enter my admin password to start the Hub?
    2) months ago I complained that the Hub wouldn't start centred on my screen. For months, I used a fix of my own consisting in setting "MainWindow.json" "read only". I am very much displeased to inform you that this problem has never been fixed.
    3) I have two "unityhub" folders in .config: the v.3 one named "unityhub" and the old one named "UnityHub".

    I deleted the new "unityhub" directory and renamed the old "UnityHub" into "unityhub" and restarted the Hub: no problem and now it does start centred.

    Please make an official announcement about these two directories; deleting the new one and renaming the old one might fix problems people are facing with this new Hub. :)

    I found the answer to that question. For some reason, starting Unity Hub requires some keyring to be unlocked; it's the first time an application does that to me. The said keyring was not unlocked because I started Linux automatically, not on the login screen.
    I'd like to know why this keyring needs to be unlocked though...

    Going through the login window being a problem, I had to find another solution. So, I still start Linux Mint automatically but I made it so that the keyring is unlocked automatically. To that effect:

    - create a file containing the following code:

    /bin/bash -c "gnome-keyring-daemon -r  -d --unlock <<<YOUR_PASSWORD"

    where YOUR_PASSWORD is replaced by the password you need to enter to log into your session. Make it executable.

    - add this code to be executed on login in "Session and Startup" (
