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.

Fixing unperceived errors in my X Windows configuration

Last week I decided to bite the bullet and upgrade X Windows to the latest version available in the main Portage tree. After rebooting, X Windows, GLX and Direct Rendering worked fine as usual. So everything was good. Well, not quite. Although the installation was working properly, there were still some long-standing messages in the X.Org log file that indicated my installation was not configured completely correctly. I had ignored them for too long and resolved to find their causes and eliminate them. Here is what I did.
