Kwallet - remembering passwords the KDE way

Filed under
KDE

Jacob took a look at standalone GTK-based password remembering tool GPass recently, and if you’re not on KDE that is a very useful tool.

KDE users however have a built in architecture called KWallet, which is designed to securely store passwords and other sensitive information but also includes integration with KDE (so for example you can have passwords auto-filled, pulled direct from your encrypted, secure KDE wallet).

In fact, you might already be using the KDE wallet. If you use Kopete for IM and have chosen to save your passwords, for example, you are. If we extend the Kopete example for a moment, the first time you choose to save a password in Kopete, you will be asked to set a password for your default KDE wallet.

It is this password that is your ‘master password’ and is used to encrypt all of the information stored inside the wallet.

Xfce Resurgence

  • Releases, releases, releases!
    So it’s not that I’ve been quiet and lazy – I was actually busy preparing some releases and hacking on stuff. So here’s an update on what’s been going on and what’s to come.
  • Alternative Global Menu For MATE And Xfce: Vala Panel AppMenu [PPA]
    A while back I wrote about TopMenu, a panel plugin that provides global menu (AppMenu) support for MATE, then also included support for Xfce and LXDE. The problem with TopMenu is that it only partially supports GTK3, it doesn't support LibreOffice, and with Ubuntu 16.04, it doesn't support Qt (4 or 5) applications. Here's where Vala Panel AppMenu comes in.
  • Parole Media Player 0.9.0 Released
    Development for the Xfce media player is back on! Well over a year since the last release, Parole 0.9.0 brings a fresh set of features and fixes.

Reviews: OpenELEC and Clear Linux

I next turned my attention to a distribution which has only recently been added to the DistroWatch database: Clear Linux. The Clear Linux distribution is unusual in a few ways. For one, the project is not designed to be a full featured or general purpose operating system; Clear Linux focuses on performance more than features. The distribution is fairly minimal and is designed with cloud computing in mind, though it may also be used in other areas, particularly on servers. Read more
