how do I recover kdewalletmanager password

Asked by Ken Johnson on 2009-06-23

pls tell me how to recover lost passwords.

Right now, the problem is KWalletManager. While I can set up other wallets, I want the PW to the original --- I have a forgetful memory and I always fail to write my PWs down.

Leo,

Thank you for your answer.

However, I have recovered master passes before to logging used to log into programs.

Sudo/ login passwd's can be "recovered"/changed. Is your kwalletmanager pass the same as your sudo/root/login pass?

I believe it is a sudo/root passwd. How do you recover KWalletManager passes? login passes can be recovered.

Ken Johnson (pebmich-comcast) said : #5

I recovered the PW by deleting the wallet, re-installing it, and pluging pwManager with a new password.

Case closed.
