Killing Kwallet

#1 Post by Curmudgeon » Fri Sep 15, 2017 8:52 pm

I'm not exactly sure if this post is in the right place, since there seem to be multiple KDE threads/subforums. Forgive me if I've chosen the wrong place.

If you're like me and hatehatehate the ever-intrusive KWallet, you are no doubt frustrated by the inability to kill it via KDE's systemsettings. (AFAICT, this bug has languished upstream for three years or more.)

Happily, there is a way to disable the KWallet daemon without running into a bogus error message from systemsettings.

The magic tool is the KWalletManager app. Start kwalletmanager from a terminal and then go into Settings -> Configure Wallet and deselect "Enable the KDE Wallet subsystem."

Problem solved.
