PostPosted: Sat Jan 02, 2016 5:45 pm    Post subject: Plasma 5: How do I upgrade to KDE wallet [Solved] Reply with quote

After updating the Plasma 5, I now have two KDE Wallet password dialog that pop up when I first launch. One dialog is for the new version, the other for the old and both have different passwords but do not differentiate the version in the dialog that is displayed. I would like to migrate to the new Wallet and discontinue the old wallet, but I cannot determine how to do that. Most guides on the internet outline some process that involves the tray icon for accessing this option, however, the tray icon for KDE wallet (new and old) is missing in the new plasma workspace. This wouldn't be such a huge annoyance if suspend to ram worked and my system didn't segfault out on console kit several times a week.

a) How do I migrate to the new KDE wallet?

b) Can I remove the old version?

c) Where is the tray icon?

On first start with the new wallet, passwords have been migrated from your old wallets. (you should have seen a password migration prompt - though it looks like any other kwallet prompt...) You can check that with kde-apps/kwalletmanager:5.

I have disabled that use, however, I still have the old prompt. I don't believe its the migration prompt, which I seem to remember receiving. This is more of a some app wants to open the legacy wallet. Also this still doesn't explain why Plasma doesn't display the tray icon for either wallet.

Code:
 * Found these USE flags for kde-apps/kdebase-runtime-meta-15.08.3:
 U I
 - - crash-reporter : Builds a gui tool to submit crash information to the upstream backtracker
 + - minimal        : Install a Plasma 5 compatible subset of the package
 - - oldwallet      : Install kde-apps/kwalletd on a minimal setup for migration purposes

Well, what does the prompt say?

Of course, you will also need to run a --depclean or manually emerge -C the old kwalletd, just switching the useflag will not remove the package.

Is it maybe just hidden? Also:

It could also be a systray bug, but you can always manually execute kwalletmanager.

I am pretty sure I depcleaned that package out before but I did it 1 more time just to make sure: http://img.ctrlv.in/img/16/01/02/56881ee999993.png

kde-apps/kwalletmanager is not installed, no idea why its not pulled in by kde meta or kdewallet for that matter.

So there we have both some prompt for passwords migration (so kwalletd:4 still seems to be present on your system) as well as one for Chromium. It might be necessary to upgrade the latter to a recent version so that it makes use of kf5 wallet. But I am not sure about that, I don't use Chromium.

kwalletmanager:5 would be pulled in e.g. by kde-apps/kdeutils-meta-15.08.3.

The plot thickens... So I was instructed to upgrade to plasma5 from kde4 by 'merging kde-plasma/plasma-meta and I do not have that package. Can I ask how you installed it?

You must understand that plasma-meta only installs the workspace. KDE Applications on the other hand are an ongoing project that are slowly being introduced to the tree, and as such there so far is no meta ebuild in tree that binds them all together.

Also, if you are on a stable system, you would need to unmask any kf5-based kde-apps/ package at this point. That might also be the reason why you don't see it?

I am on a ~amd64 system and started this process by simply emerge -avuDN world one day. My systems pretty much been a disaster since. We did manage to resolve a problem with all my users groups disappearing, after a whole lot of "this couldn't possibly be a KDE problem."

This is probably why my world file is wrecked with all this garbage and why packages like kde-apps/kdeutils-meta never got pulled in. I've pulled out kde-apps/kwalletd and put in kde-apps/kwalletmanager and a few other packages from that meta. Lets see if that resolves this issues.

Thank you for you help. Removing the old one and installing the new one manually did the trick. I'll dig though my world file and see what else is missing.

Personally I maintain a set of my required kde-apps packages that is easily transferable to other systems.
