KDE Wallet Manager is a tool to manage the passwords on your KDE system. By using the KDE wallet subsystem it not only allows you to keep your own secrets but also to access and manage the passwords of every application that integrates with the KDE wallet.

Using the KDE Wallet to store ssh keys

Install Ksshaskpass from comunity repo:

pacman -S ksshaskpass

Create the file


Add this content

ssh-add </dev/null

Make it executable and run

chmod +x ~/.kde4/Autostart/ssh-add.sh

You may also have to source the script that sets the SSH_ASKPASS environment variable:

. /etc/profile.d/ksshaskpass.sh

It will ask for your password and unlock the your ssh keys.

You may need to go to system settings -> advanced -> Autostart -> add script in newer version of KDE.

KDE Wallet for firefox

There is an addon to make firefox store passwords with KDE wallet.


KDE Wallet for chromium

Chromium has built in wallet integration.

To enable it you should run your Chromium browser by adding --password-store=kwallet or --password-store=detect.

While second option SHOULD be default it happened to not working for author, so it's if it's happening to You, invoke Your browser with:

chromium --password-store=kwallet
