Situation

You are a KDE4/KDE5 user who is fed up with entering your SSH passphrase multiple times per day.


Procedure

  • Install ksshaskpass if it isn't already.
  • Add a script: ~/.kde4/Autostart/ssh-add.sh (KDE4) or ~/.config/autostart-scripts/ssh-add.sh (KDE5), with execute permission, containing:
#!/bin/sh
export SSH_ASKPASS=/usr/lib/ssh/ksshaskpass
/usr/bin/ssh-add </dev/null

Next time you login, you'll be prompted for your KDE Wallet password and then your passphrase. From then on, no more passphrase prompts.
