FS#1496 - Kwallet prompts for passwords at login for WIFI & migration unnecessarily

Description: After a clean install of Ian, if auto-login is used, kwallet asks for a password for KDED5 and the Migration Wizard. Disabling auto-login solved it but it came back (probably after an update) in the last week. Also, the password it needs to continue is not the password chosen for kwallet. In my case it's mine / root (same for both), I chose an empty password for kwallet.


Steps to reproduce:
Install Ian, enable auto-login. Restart.


Actual result:
Kwallet asks for passwords twice, for KDED5 and Migration Wizard.

Expected result:
Kwallet is invisible to the user.

This task does not depend on any other tasks.

I've got rid of the second password request for the migration wizard:
1) .config/kwalletrc was owned by root so I changed it to me, and
2) I added the following:
[Migration]
alreadyMigrated=true

I did no. 2 first as suggested in a KDE bug page https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=345412
but it still didn't work so I took a look at the file permissions and changed ownership to current user. I suspect the permissions were the problem and the migration entry would have been put in correctly at the right time.

Fixed the KDED5 password request - I installed kwalletmanager and changed the password to empty and it now logs in automatically without a prompt. Weird thing is that I set it up first time with an empty password but every time it asked me after login, it only went away with my password (which is also root password).
Hopefully someone will know the inner workings from what I've done and see the solution.

I'm wondering if this only happens in certain conditions because there have only been a few reports... maybe if root password is set same as current user?

the kdewallet unlock would eventually migrated to gpg key prompt, that would work better on open/close detection.
