KWallet sync

Thu Mar 02, 2017 2:25 pm
If I have two computers, which both have KWallet on them, is there any way to keep the two instances synced?

It seems silly to have one password database on one computer, and another database on another, that contain the same passwords (very inconvenient too)

Thank you

Hi,

I have the same problem like you - and I do not know an smart solution.

For me I solved this problem by linking the actual kdewallet.kwl and kdewallet.salt from ~/.local/share/kwalletd/ to my Nextcloud sync folder on each device. But this is a bit dangerous. You have to make sure, that the wallet you sync gets opened after the cloud sync has finished. Otherwise the old (local) version of your password file is loaded and overwrites the new (cloud) version by closing KWallet... ...and therefore you need an cloud service with versioning o)

Best regards,
Josef

I use the way with manually syncing kdewallet.kwl file between computers already long time, and sometimes got problems with overwriting cloud changes with local, especially when I setup new KDE account on device.

After next time when this way delete (overwrite) all my password database via empty file, my patience is over!

I'm tired of waiting when native sync via ksecretsservice and secretsync will be implemented, and fill issue on KWalletManager bug tracker: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=403648

Please join to it and vote for quicker fix kwallet sync problem via manually syncing kwallet.kwl file!
