[SOLVED]KDA PLasma 5.18.2 WiFi auto-connection and missing sytem tray

Hi!

Since I got the last update of KDE PLasma 5.18.2-1 my desktop is having a weird behavior. I haven't used kwallet before this update and since I received this update I had to install kwallet and keep it to be able to connect to my Wi-Fi network automatically.

Another issue I've found is that the system tray icons get broken sometimes. Sometimes they appear just right, but almost every time I log in to my KDE PLasma Desktop some of them don't appear.

Is there anyone else with these issues? Does anyone know any way to fix them?

Cheers!

Hi, how can I check if it's running? I don't know too much about how kwallet and kded work yet.

Thank you!

I have your opposite problem, been using kdewallet since installation and now the auto unlock doesn't work:

Re: [SOLVED]KDA PLasma 5.18.2 WiFi auto-connection and missing sytem tray

Hello,

I've got the same issue of missing icons in systray. Kde icons are displayed fine but other applications (slack, KeepassXC, Nextcloud...) are missing :

Kded5 is running.
In journald, I have this error several times :

plasmashell[1006]: file:///usr/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.private.systemtray/contents/ui/items/StatusNotifierItem.qml: ReferenceError: Icon is not defined

If anyone have an idea ?

Thanks

Re: [SOLVED]KDA PLasma 5.18.2 WiFi auto-connection and missing sytem tray

Hi,

Same missing systray icons (Slack, FlameShot, Octopi, etc...) issue here since upgrade on KDE plasma 5.18 (was perfectly working with 5.17.x).
I have try a lot of things without finding a real fix.

However, I guess that running this command help a bit (after disconnect/reconnect the user session):

kbuildsycoca5 --noincremental

Another thing which works most of the time:

  1. login with your user => missing icon in systray

  2. logout

  3. login with another user

  4. logout from this other user

  5. login with your user again => no missing icon in systray anymore! cool

After that systray icons are correctly displayed for a long time (usually until the next plasma/kde package upgrade)

@surrealistic
About Network Manager asking to store your wifi passwords in kwallet, you can...
or:

  1. install kwallet

  2. create a blowfish encrypted wallet with an empty password

  3. forgot about it! tongue

or (not recommended but still should works):

  1. open Network Manager settings (upper right icon in the Network Manager systray panel)

  2. select your wifi network

  3. go on "security" tab

  4. enter your wifi network password

  5. on the dropdown choose to store your password without encryption

  6. save

  7. do the same things for all your wifi networks... mad

My advise, as kwallet is the chosen solution to store encrypted things in KDE, is to install/setup/use it.
The trick is to create an "unprotected" wallet (empty password) the first time and so KDE will automatically open and use your wallet on login without asking anything else after that.
NB: @deleted => it could be a workaround for you until sddm can unlock you wallet through pam again.

Hope this help.
Cheers too!
