Don’t know if this has been mentioned or discussed earlier, but I just noticed something I found a bit peculiar; the set of characters available to include in a password phrase for the KDE wallet has changed from 13.1 to 13.2.
Might get some into trouble when upgrading.
In my case, this was regarding the £ symbol, I could not reuse the password on openSUSE 13.2.
Did you change the way you enter a £ using the keyboard? I e.g. have no such character on any key of my keyboard, but can enter it (using key combinations) and it will create an U+00A3 Unicode point (encoded in UTF-8 as: x’C2A3’). But I can remember keyboards that had a £ character engraved on it in pre Unicode tiimes. I do not know what character value it created, but it must have been something in the ASCII range (only one byte) (overlapping some other ASCII character).
Hi, thanks for this, I did not know how to test that.
I really did not think much of it either, the error message just mentioned something like ‘unacceptable character, only … can be used’; my two main machines, though, are running 13.1 using that same pass phrase, and, as far as I could see, using the same keyboard layout set to ‘norwegian’.
Just, to correct myself, there is no change in the character set as I thought it to be.
The problem was that after the installation the keyboard layout changed/reset itself to something (globally), US I suppose; though, I did not really check that precisely.
It happened on three seperate installs, and I got a bit confused in the mix-up of passwords that worked and, actually, just the one noted which didn’t.
I should have tested and checked more before posting, though.
Both creating new password phrases and reusing existing wallets, blowfish in both cases, works fine where the £ symbol is included now.
