I think these two problems are related, but corelation doesn’t imply causation, so they might not be.
I am guilty of many changes of DEs and distros (Ubuntu (Cinnamon -> unity -> kde) -> OpenSUSE Tumbleweed (KDE -> i3)) and that has left quite a mess of different configs in my home folder, which I have preserved throughout this madness. Everything is mostly ok, but my credentials are fragmented in gnome-keyring, kwallet and possibly other places. I would like to be able to solve this once for all and have ideally one keyring program, that would automatically unlock on login and store everything.
Currently I use i3 and sddm. Until few days ago, whenever a program would want to use gnome-keyring or kwallet, I would get a password popup to unlock it and that was, while not ideal, mostly managable. The respective program stayed unlocked for the rest of the session, which was fine. Some programs couldn’t trigger this dialog (PhpStorm for instance), no idea why, so I opened a program which was able to do so and it was still fine.
A few days ago the gnome-keyring popup stopped appearing at all and at the same time most of my home folder became unavailable from Save-as, Open and similar dialogs. The only two folders available are Downloads and Desktop for some reason. As I said, I have no idea if these problems have anything to do with each other, but they seem related.
Is there any way to fix this?
Thanks a lot for your patience,
