Having WiFi active at boot time, no KDE Wallet

So, first of all: I am using KDE Wallet on my computer and am quite fine with it. This is about “HER” computer, and she does not like KDE Wallet. At all. So there is no way for it.
Things said and done, I am currently moving HERs from Manjaro over to EOA, and I am facing an issue here. First of all I disabled KDE Wallet via putting


into ~/.config/kwalletrc - that was the easy task. I then connected to the wifi and tried to save the password in the network settings dialog, gave it a low priority and rebootet. No connection until Desktop and beeing asked for the password - this is troublesome in two ways:

  1. Wife does not want to type in password
  2. Her computer is connected via fstab / nfs with the NAS, and this connection will not work this way.

It was easy with Manjaro, but I think I missed something here…

Hello, there.

Just to clarify. You want the WiFi to be autoconnected at boot, correct? I thought this can be easily done by setting the autoconnect flag with your network manager. Are you using NetworkManager?

pacman -Qs networkmanager

If you are, then can you check the output of the following command:

nmcli connection show <wifi name> | grep "autoconnect" 

Note that you need to run the command when you are already connected to the wifi network.

Yes, I do use networkmanager, and the KDE gui for it:

$ pacman -Qs networkmanager
local/libnm 1.42.6-1
    NetworkManager client library
local/networkmanager 1.42.6-1
    Network connection manager and user applications
local/networkmanager-openconnect 1.2.10-1
    NetworkManager VPN plugin for OpenConnect
local/networkmanager-openvpn 1.10.2-3
    NetworkManager VPN plugin for OpenVPN
local/networkmanager-qt 5.109.0-1 (kf5)
    Qt wrapper for NetworkManager API
$ pacman -Qs plasma-nm 
local/plasma-nm 5.27.7-1 (plasma)
    Plasma applet written in QML for managing network connections

Autoconnect seems to be doing what I setup in the gui:

nmcli connection show naihatsu.nati | grep "autoconnect" 
connection.autoconnect:                 ja
connection.autoconnect-priority:        0
connection.autoconnect-retries:         -1 (default)
connection.autoconnect-slaves:          -1 (default)

yet I still being queried by KDE after boot - with no network connection - for the password.

I see.

Do you have kwalletmanager installed? If you have, go to settings. Under “configure wallet”, uncheck “Enable the KDE wallet subsystem.”

I didn’t had it installed. Installed it, removed the old connection, disabled kwallet subsystem, redid the old connection including the “save password” under connections, rebootet - et voila! Tyvm!
