Next time you’ll start your updated Plasma 5 session’s KDE Wallet system, it’ll eventually start migrating your wallets. The precondition is that you’re doing that on a system that also has KDE4 and that you previously used that installation’s KDE Wallet system. If your system doesn’t have a KDE4 wallet daemon, then nothing will happen.
Simply follow the instructions of the wizard that’ll popup. If you accept the migration option, then for each of your existing KDE4 wallet you’ll be :
- prompted with a new Plasma 5 wallet creation wizard – that’ll eventually be the moment to switch to GPG wallets
- eventually prompted for the old wallet’s password, it the old daemon didn’t had it already opened by some other KDE4 program.
The migration assistant will preserve wallet names and wallet internal structure.
As usual, do not hesitate to file bug reports if you encounter any problem!
A final note about those who installed KDE4 in a prefix that’s not /usr. Please ‘ln -s [your kwalletd location] /usr/bin/kwalletd’ in order to let the migration agent correctly find and start the KDE4 daemon. Without that, it’ll not trigger the migration. (yes, that’s a quick hack, but it works).
