I was starting to like Kmail and Kontact when Kwallet went wonky on me. I tried what a poster on this forum suggested and deleted the wallet, but Kwallet won't create a new one. When I ask to do so it requests a new password and I enter it twice, but no new wallet is created.
I know there are a lot of posts wanting to remove / delete kwallet.I am trying to undo my blunder of setting a password, I installed kwalletmanager and it does not have anything I can change, so I was wondering if I deleted the kwallet.kwl file, would it ask me to set a password again so it can be set to a blank password or is there something searching the forums and google for the past four hours
I use KeepassX and KWallet, and while they might have begun with similar ideas, their use cases ended up becoming radically different, so it's wrong to say one is better than another.The main difference is that KWallet is tightly integrated into every KDE application, all applications store your saved accounts and passwords into a "keyring" that can be accessed as needed with a pass
I just spent the last few hours with David Edmunson debugging why when I tried to connect to jabber with the correct password it would tell me the password was wrong. It turns out that it all came down to kwallet not being installed (and having a wallet open).Given I just installed Telepathy and all the ktp packages, and pacman didn't pull kwallet in, I thought I should mention it.
I used to use Firefox KWallet Extension and secure login extension. When I wrote first letters of login then login name appeared and I could chose it and when pressed enter (or after using tab to pass to password window and press enter) password was auto-filled and I was logged in.
Since Firefox 23 it doesn't work anymore.
Anyone has a idea how to make it work again this way?
As stated in the following link, a window will popup for the user to input the keyring password when it is autologin:
If you are autologin'ing to your machine, gdm uses su to become your user, without ever using the password.
