Question KDE Wallet


I am back with another question, Regarding the KDE wallet, is it possible to change the password? It is misbehaving so I disabled it but that only created more problems. Is this an app. that I should even be using. All advice appreciated.

Hi...

Is this with Slackware? What version of KDE are you using? How is it misbehaving?

Regards...

My apologies, I was remiss in not mentioning Slackware up front, yes it is Slackware
What version of KDE ? How do I find out?
It refuses to accept the original password I set the first time I used it, I now have it disabled and so far I can function without it.
Edit: I noticed you use windows vista, I always liked vista myself although it seemed to get a bad rap from many.

Please see here. This is assuming you're using the KDE desktop and have other KDE programs.

Although for Ubuntu, see if the instructions here help.

Thank you, I Like it, too. It's been very stable on the desktop it's installed on (a Dell Inspiron 531S.) For me, it has an elegant interface and is easy to use. However, the drawbacks I have with it are...

1. The UAC, which I found instructions online to disable completely.
2. It's a pretty heavy OS. I have found from experience that a 2 GB's of memory is the bare minimum for it to run decently, along with, I'm guessing, a dual core processor.
3. Vista didn't ship with "Internet Checkers" or the "Space Cadet" pinball game. However, Chess Titans is pretty cool!

I found out from Microsoft that it's not legal to install a copy of the pinball game onto Vista, unfortunately.

BTW, You have a very beautiful country up there. I had a chance to visit Victoria back in 2005. Very unique city, I've not seen anything like it anywhere else.

Regards...

Could you share with us exactly what you did to fix it?

I am finding out that the KDE Wallet is a fairly complex tool, I am still trying to figure it all out. I did however succeed in changing the password as follows, click on the arrow on the lower right, beside the battery indicator, brings up a box that includes
KDE Wallet Manager, click that and it brings up the Manager in a box in the upper left corner of the screen, click on the wallet icon opens another box with some more tools,
These include File, Edit, Settings, Help. Click on file and you will find an option to change password, here you must enter your password, and it worked for me this time so I changed it. Obviously if you didn't remember your password or it wouldn't accept it, I am not sure what you would do in that case. However it worked, so I am happy. I did have the wallet disabled for a while as it seemed more of a nuisance than anything else, however I can see the merit in only having to remember one password instead of many so I have re-enabled it to give it an honest trial. As I said, it is fairly complex and the help instructions leave a lot to be desired, but then this is my first experience with a password management tool so it is a rather steep learning curve. All in all the KDE Wallet may be a better tool that it appears on first impression.

I would be interested to hear from anyone else who has some experience with it.
