I'm a kde user, and I use kwallet heavily. In the first place, I'm pretty sure that I was never asked about saving this key in my wallet, but even if I was, I would have saved it, and the wallet is always open throughout any session - I set it to stay open until I log out - so it would provide the key if it knew it. The only place I have set the key is in the dialog that you get for network settings, to the best of my knowledge, part of NM. That still retains the key - but it doesn't get used. Anne -- New to KDE4? - get help from http://userbase.kde.org Just found a cool new feature? Add it to UserBase
