how does opera detect and use gnome-keyring?

Hi, I am using
swaywindow manager mostly on top of gnome environment and services. Therefore
gnome-keyringexists and is being initialized fine.
However since the content of
swaywhen running sway, unfortunately opera cannot detect if
gnome-keyringis running (or maybe does not try to detect the presence of it).
This workaround made me think opera did not try to detect the presence of gnome. Run
DESKTOP_SESSION=gnome operafrom the command line client. A
password-storeflag does not need to be present. This one can use gnome-keyring.
There are some options to invoke the app like that, however it requires manual tuning of every kind of launcher. As most of them use
/usr/share/applications/opera.desktopand my updates will be overridden, it might be very useful to put an option letting the user specify that the current running window manager is indeed
gnomeeven though some other is selected.
BTW, a workaround like
DESKTOP_SESSION=mate operaworks as well. This made me think of a white list that includes a list of desktop environments which are gnome-based. Therefore another avenue for a solution might be to put
swayinto that whitelist. It is a popular combination to run sway along with gnome.
Thanks in advance for making life easier for us!
