Thread: KDE Wallet

  1. #1

    Default KDE Wallet

    I figured out that I need KDE Wallet to get the WiFi to connect on my laptop. Unfortunately, in SeaMonkey I have to enter the password for scottsbasslessons.com every time, the "remember me" check box is checked, but it doesn't work. Passwords are greyed-out in the SeaMonkey settings. I imagine the same thing will happen if I log in to this forum from the laptop. Is there a way to set up KDE Wallet to remember those passwords? I could just memorize the passwords, there's only those two that I use on a regular basis, but it would be nice to get KDE Wallet to work. I also have Firefox, but there's no add-on for KDE Wallet for my version. Add-ons tend to stop working when there's a browser update, so I would rather avoid using those.

    It sounds as if the “remember” passwords, forms data setting(s) in SeaMonkey are unset. Or that you have an incompatible plug-in installed.

    I only use KWallet for KDE/Plasma5/Qt5 related components. I let Firefox manage its own passwords, form data etc.

    It is set. Also is set in Firefox, neither will "remember" the password.

    Forgot to mention, I haven't installed any add-ons or anything to SeaMonkey or FireFox. If I enter the passwords myself every time, I'm likely to remember them eventually

    Some sites do that. They deliberately do their password checking in a way that prevents the browser from saving the password.

    the "remember me" check box is checked, but it doesn't work.
    That box usually means that they will set a cookie that remembers your name (but perhaps not the password). If you set your browser to delete cookies on closing the browser, then it won't do anything.

    I suspect SeaMonkey needs Gnome keyring. Different programs use different password managers.

    It's not a problem on my desktop PC, works fine. But on the laptop, no dice. It also happens with openSuse forum. The desktop is using wicked, the laptop is using network manager, if that makes a difference.

    How is that set up? This is all new to me.

    Now I'm wondering if I have misunderstood the thread.

    Either "wicked" or "NetworkManager" is used to connect to the network. But "seamonkey" should just use the network connection you have. And "seamonkey" should not be involved in connecting to the basic network (ethernet or WiFi), though it does need there to be a connection (unless you are working offline).

    I ran "seamonkey" under a new user account, so that it should have all of the defaults for a new user. And then, checking the settings, it was already configured to "Remember passwords". I did not try to actually login to any site.

    It does work that way, I just wasn't sure if Network Manager was at fault somehow. I couldn't connect to WiFi without using KDE Wallet. Entering the password wouldn't "take", it would be missing when I re-checked. It will only stay set if I have KDE Wallet enabled. I've never needed it before, since I never used WiFi in the past. It's me that's confused, really. On my desktop PC, I don't use WiFi, so passwords are remembered.
