Re: [opensuse-kde3] pasting password into KDE3 applications

I use openSUSE 12.2 with KDE 3.5.10. I am testing different KDE3 ftp clients,

"a8shgeyrtsd84befc" typing it in is not a solution. How can I enable pasting

password manager (KDE wallet?).




As others have mentioned, konqueror (through its kio-slaves) provides an excellent ftp ...and... sftp client. It's not documented very well, but you can reach any ftp (or sftp) site by typing the following in the address bar:


If you have configured passwordless logon by creating host/key pairs, you can omit the user:pass information. If you have added the Host/Port pairs in ~/.ssh/config, then you can eliminate the port information as well. Which leaves you:


This same scheme for url entry work in all KDE apps, like Kate, Kwrite, etc.. For example, if you are working on a remote web-site, you can open all the remote files up in Kate using this url scheme and directly edit the files on the remote site. Very handy.
