Can we destroy *keyring? (PLEASE?!)

Why in the world would I want to enter my user password EVERY SINGLE TIME I LOG IN (auto login, yeah yeah) to connect to a saved password in my wi-if (network manager). I remember this from all the way back in Ubuntu 8.04 and up, and hated it then, and it’s STILL around. Can I please get the hell rid of this horrible no good program and tell network manager to save my password–your phone and windows, and probably mac does this, why not Linux? I bet KDE has the keyring too, I can’t get away from it. I hate it, and I want it gone forever!

What desktop are you using?

I am not prompted for password for WiFi. But how to configure that depends on desktop.

In KDE, there is “kdewallet”, and people complain about that, too.

hi timpster

there is no need to enter your password for wifi if the Connection manager entry
is set-up as follows

in the General configuration tab,
select “All users may connect to this network”

in the Wi-Fi Security tab,
after entering password,
click on the symbol on the right hand side of the box,
select “Store password and make it available for all users (not encrypted)”

NB. if when selecting the symbol your password becomes visible, expand the window and try it again

the above works here on Leap and Tumbleweed installs

Thank you that did it! Now if we could just make that the default behavior…

At which point, someone will complain that the default behavior is not
secure…

Which is true and becomes even more true if auto login is used.
