#90 Using gnome keyring on KDE

Lode Vandevenne

I'm using KDE 3.5 but would like it to use gnome keyring.

In the documentation (http://pypi.python.org/pypi/keyring) it says you can change the backend in a config file. However, I don't know what I should put in the config file to make it use gnome-keyring: I placed "default-backend=keyring.backend.GnomeKeyring" in it, but then I got an error that the backend had to be a class of a certain type.

I'm using this for mercurial (with mercurial_keyring).

Apart from the problem above (that I'm unable to create a working config file that lets it use gnome), I also have another problem: Sometimes in mercurial, it asks for a password, then says to type the password again for the keyring, and then does the action. But then at a next command, it asks the password twice again, and so on forever. So it doesn't store the password at all, without giving any error or explanation why. In fact, I got this during another attempt at forcing it to use gnome-keyring.

So basically, what I'm asking is:

How can I let keyring and mercurial_keyring, use gnome-keyring, while on a KDE system, and what things do I have to type exactly, in which files exactly (exact path!). I don't want to use kwallet.
