    Default chromium-desktop-kde

    Does anyone know what is the plan with chromium-desktop-kde?

    I was using the network:/chromium repository for quite a while but about a week ago when I attempted to update chromium from 53.0.2785 to 54.0.? there was no chromium-desktop-kde package available. So I switched chromium back to the oss/update repo. Now today's update wants to update chromium to 54.0.2840 and uninstall chromium-desktop-kde.

    I use chromium because with the chromium-desktop-kde package I get good integration with KDE and especially kwallet. I don't want to lose this functionality! If I update chromium, will I lose the ability to use kwallet, or is the function now built directly into chromium?

    Thanks for any info.

    I don't use kwallet and therefor haven't installed chromium-desktop-kde and it doesn't seem to have had any effect on chromium's integration with KDE.Obviously, when you want to use kwallet it probably will have an effect.You could try it out by (1) changing the name of your current chromium preferences folder; (2) do the chromium update; (3) launch chromium and see if you still have the same integration. And if you don't, you can revers everything.

    I went ahead with the update. My passwords are still there! Yay!

    The file /usr/lib64/chromium/chromium-kde had in it's exec line --password-store=kwallet

    Now the file /usr/bin/chromium has --password-store=detect

    From the man page for chromium:
    Code:
    --password-store=<basic|gnome|kwallet>
                  Set the password store to use.  The default is to automatically detect based on the desktop environment.  basic selects the built in, unencrypted password store.  gnome selects Gnome keyring.  kwallet  selects
                  (KDE) KWallet.  (Note that KWallet may not work reliably outside KDE.)
    So maybe chromium-desktop-kde wasn't necessary.
