Kde wallet keeps asking me for a password

My kde wallet asks me for a password(which i dont know since i didnt enter any password ever) for opening stuff like discord or my browser every time after i reboot and it asks me for wifi password every time i disconnect even if i nentered the password before. i tried doing a snapshot backup or whatever thats called but it doesnt work. i also tried removing kde wallet but it breaks the UI. what can i do to fix that?

You can edit file ~/.kde/share/config/kwalletrc - adding to [Wallet] section just one line


save quit reboot problem gone - I hope it helps


that folder only contains one file called kdeglobals

Then create that suggested file and add the suggested text in the suggested section, as @bugfix suggested. :wink:

thing is i just did that, it made it so i couldnt connect to any wifi always getting the message "no secrets were provided"

Are you using autologin ?

Did you try your root or user password?

Try to configure network manager as suggested then use again the file disabling kwallet with enable=false

If the kwallet Migration Assistant asks for a password after every login, rename or delete the `~/.kde4/share/apps/kwallet` folder.

but that folder doesnt exist and if i try just getting rid of kwallet my entire system is gone do i really have to reinstall? if so how can i make it that all the stuff is there how i left it?

Post contents of the file. Run this in terminal

cat ~/.config/kwalletrc
