Description Orion Poplawski 2014-11-24 21:34:11 UTC
Description of problem:

When running plasma-5, SSH_ASKPASS is not set.  I believe /etc/kde/env/ksshaskpass.sh needs to be moved to /etc/xdg/plasma-workspace/env/ksshaskpass.sh.  No idea about backwards compatibility.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2015-01-30 18:00:15 UTC
We can fix that up when we upgrade to kf5-ized ksshaskpass-5.2.0 (or newer)

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2015-01-30 18:40:13 UTC
* Fri Jan 30 2015 Rex Dieter <rdieter@fedoraproject.org> 5.2.0-1
- ksshaskpass-5.2.0 (#1167480)

We'll see about adding this to the plasma-5 copr too

Did this fix work ?
With ksshaskpass-5.4.2-1.fc23.x86_64, SSH_ASKPASS isn't set, so I think /etc/xdg/plasma-workspace/env/ksshaskpass.sh isn't used.

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2015-10-07 12:05:36 UTC
fyi, builds of plasma-workspace-5.4.2 prior to plasma-workspace-5.4.2-4 had a buggy startkde script that prevented environment variables from being set properly.

(In reply to Rex Dieter from comment #4)
Confirmed, SSH_ASKPASS is back with plasma-workspace-5.4.2-4.fc23, thanks.
