Chromium and kwallett
« on: December 04, 2012, 12:32:47 pm »
Whenever I start up Chromium for the first time after a boot-up, I get asked for my kwallet password.

All of my info Chromium info is saved on Google, not in kwallet. I have checked the command line that launches the program and I deleted the switch to select which wallet system to use. I have checked kwallet to see what info is being stored in it for Chromium and nothing is being saved there, although an entry for Chromium does exist. If I close Chromium and restart it I do not get asked again for the password. All of my wifi info is stored in kwallet, so the kwallet is opened up for that, without a password request, so the system has been already used. I have the checkbox to not close kwallet checked.

Anyone else have this problem and fixed it?

openSuse 12.2, 64-bit, Chromium v25

Run:
Code: [Select]
kate ~/.kde/share/config/kwalletrc
and move "Chromium" from "Auto Allow" to "Auto Deny"

so so the finished kwalletrc reads:-

Quote
[Auto Allow]
Default=KDE Dæmon,Kopete,KDE Wallet Manager

[Auto Deny]
Default=Chromium

[Wallet]
Close When Idle=false
Close on Screensaver=false
Default Wallet=Default
Enabled=true
First Use=false
Idle Timeout=10
Launch Manager=false
Leave Manager Open=false
Leave Open=true
Prompt on Open=false
Use One Wallet=true


SAVE the file .. REBOOT .. test Chromium.



Or you can turn kwallet off altogether by changing

Enabled=true
to
Enabled=false

Saving the file, and rebooting.

Thanks, I'll give it a go tonight.

I have considered switching off kwallet before, but then if I do, how would I connect to my wireless router without having to re-enter the password all of the time?

Network manager should remember your router password ???

You're right, network manager remembered the password. I know in a previous openSuse release, kwallet managed it, it has obviously changed since then. Didn't even think to try it without kwallet active  ::)

Many thanks, kwallet is now disabled and I don't get that stupid request now.

BTW, moving Chromium to the Auto Deny section did not work.
