KDE Wallet – reanimated

By   2015-09-07

Just a short one this time.

After my poor OpenSUSE died and got reinstalled the only irritating thing left was the Wallet. It kept raising an error and didn’t accept my password, so I deleted the wallet and created another one, named creds.

When I tried to configure my mail agent again, the Wallet system demanded me to create a wallet named kdewallet. No other name was acceptable, so I had to remove the new and shiny creds wallet and build a third one, again named kdewallet.

Now the credentials manager/encryption works rather fine, with one exception. I have to input my security key for openPGP (I read that’s OK) but why do I have to enter my IMAP password as well? Shouldn’t it get saved as well?
