Although I use GNOME 3 as my desktop environment, I prefer KDE’s kwallet service to gnome-keyring for some functions. The user interface is a little easier to use and it’s easier to link up to the keyring module in Python. Accidentally disabling kwallet A few errant mouse clicks caused me to accidentally disable the kwalletd service earlier today and I was struggling to get it running again. The daemon is usually started by dbus and I wasn’t entirely sure how to start it properly.
