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


  • Install ksshaskpass if it isn't already. On Plasma 5, the correct package is "ksshaskpass5".
  • Add a script: ~/.kde4/Autostart/ (KDE4) or ~/.config/autostart-scripts/ (KDE5), with execute permission, containing:
export SSH_ASKPASS=/usr/lib/ssh/ksshaskpass
/usr/bin/ssh-add </dev/null

Starting with openSUSE Tumbleweed 20200826, enter this (/usr/lib/ changed to /usr/libexec/):

export SSH_ASKPASS=/usr/libexec/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.
