SSH passphrase annoyance and quick fix
|Reported by:||dhekir@…||Owned by:||alwin|
I'm using XFCE as my window manager and accessing a SVN repository using a SSH key file with passphrase.
Whenever I start kdesvn using XFCE's "run program" (Alt+F2), if I connect to my SVN repository, I'm asked for the SSH passphrase (even if KDE Wallet is active and the password is already saved) for each operation. However, I just noticed that if I open kdesvn from a terminal it behaves as expected (the saved passwords prevent me from having to type it for each operation). It happened with my kdesvn 1.5.3, so I tried compiling 1.5.5, and it still happens.
I believe you probably cannot fix it, since it must be a XFCE/KDE/SSH askpass problem, but if you see many users having this issue, you could maybe put a message on the kdesvn FAQ that says how to deal with SSH stored keys.
