A KDE 4 version of ssh-askpass with KWallet support.

Debian packages for the KDE 3 version can be found in Lenny. Packages for the KDE 4 version should arrive in unstable within the next days.

Ksshaskpass is also shipped by Ubuntu, Fedora and Mandriva. Please notify me, if you know of more distributions.


* Disable rpath of the binary.

* - Do not read password from wallet, when ssh-add tells us that the former
passphrase has been incorrect. Fixes an infinite loop, when the wrong
passphrase has been stored in KWallet.
- Replace 'password' with 'passphrase'.
- Thanks to Glennie Vignarajah for noticing both and the initial patch.
* Wrap Wallet-Object in std::auto_ptr to make sure it is always freed.
* Add REAME explaining how to use ksshaskpass.

* Install manpage into correct directory.

* Port to KDE 4.

* Add manpage.
* Apply patch written by Gustavo De Nardin to return with an error, if the user cancelled the input. Thanks Gustavo.

* New maintainer Armin Berres. Hans van Leeuwen vanished -- thanks for his work so far.
* Use CMake as build system and remove all the Autotools related files.
* Only show the option to save the password if the wallet could be opened before.
* Close wallet after we used it.
* Some minor fixes.

 Another app that does the same

There is another app "KWaller Askpass Program" http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=50196, which does exactly the same. Ksshaskpass does it better, though. :-)

 using several ssh-keys

 by meyerm on: Apr 2 2010

Hi there,

the program's really nice. Just a minor annoyance, which I hope is simply a misconfiguration by me:

I'm adding several ssh-keys with ssh-add in the Autostart of KDE and the dialog asking for my _wallet_-password on behalf of ksshaskpass pops up several times for each ssh-key.

How can I get this to work so that I'm only ask once for my kwallet-password?

Is here anybody using the program when adding several ssh-keys to your session? Just to check if it is indeed somehow possible to _not_ get asked several times?

There's a typo in the README file, it should be:

not =ksshaskpath.

Ok, I see, you mean /path/to/ksshaskpss , sorry for the confusion... but it's a bit obscure in its current state :/

 one password to rule them all

 by mtk0 on: May 19 2010
Score 50%

i use v0.5.3 under FC12. my desktop is KDE although i'm still using GDM. GDM is configured to start the gnome-keyring as a daemon. i start my own X session via .xsession ("startkde" at the end). ssh-add runs ksshaskpass correctly.

my question is this - is there a way to get GDM to pass the login password to ksshaskpass in order to unlock my default wallet (containing my ssh keys)? i know i can null out the wallet password but that doesn't seem right.

 frontend to sudo

 by fwyzard on: Jul 30 2011
Score 50%

I just discovered ksshaskpass while looking for a KDE frontend to "sudo".

If you do

export SUDO_ASKPASS=/usr/bin/ksshaskpass

in your .bashrc, then "sudo -A" will use ksshaskpass to give ou a nice graphical dialog.

There's only one problem: ksshaskpass does not add a newline when dumping the password on standard output (the other ssh-askpass variants do). Could you add it ?

 keyFile Bug

 by getriebesand on: Jan 4 2013
Score 50%

when ssh ask for a password it pass the string "user@host's password: " with a trailing whitespace.

in kwallet the key is only "password" and so it can only store 1 ssh password.

i have changed line 69 to:
keyFile = dialog.trimmed().section(" ", -2).remove(":");

now it works fine

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
