I've just changed over to razor-qt on an old laptop I have lying around, trying to get some extra life out of it. In the process, I switched from gdm to lightdm. But lightdm is asking me for two passwords. I'm using the gtk-greeter, because the qt and razor greeters don't work, but that's another story. As it stands, the greeter starts, I'm shown a prompt with my username, and a field for password entry. I enter my password, and a blue bar appears below the password entry saying "SSH password", and I must enter my password again. At this point, it takes about 1 minute to start razor-qt. I must enter the password correctly both times. If I flip over to a text-console (ctrl-alt-f1) and log in to the same user, it works like normal, one password entry, no delays...

All help appreciated as always!

Right, I've solved the asking for two passwords thing. I had the "ssh" USE flag enabled for pam, and the pam_ssh module enabled in /etc/pam.d/system-auth

I added the try_first_pass option in the pam config file, as follows and I'm no longer asked for multiple passwords.

Code:
auth      sufficient   pam_ssh.so [b]try_first_pass[/b] nullok
auth      required   pam_unix.so try_first_pass likeauth nullok
