Opera 25 DEV does not store passwords in GNOME

  • I recognized that Opera 25 DEV does not ask for saving passwords.
    And i dont find a entry of entered password in GNOME keyring.

    Chromium uses GNOME keyring.

    Using Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS (x86_64; Unity)

    Can you confirm this?

  • Can you confirm this?

    yes :(

  • Bug reported DNA-26261 "Passwords not stored in GNOME keyring"

  • Hi @angiesdom: You can try to run the Opera, with the command line switch: /usr/bin/opera-developer --password-store=gnome, and see if it help ;-) The source link.

  • @l33t4opera (...) with the command line switch: /usr/bin/opera-developer with --password-store=gnome (...)

    Thanks for the hint, i'll try it.

    I thought Opoera is able to detect automatically the systems keyring as Chromium does.

  • I thought Opoera is able to detect automatically the systems keyring as Chromium does.

    This is correct, Opera will detect the system keyring and use the Gnome one when running in Gnome. Just to verify, you don't get the bar at the top of the page that asks you if you want to save a password when you go to a password-protected web site (for example at http://browserspy.dk/password.php if you want a simple test case)? Or is it on a specific web site that this isn't working for you?

  • @avl Opera 25 DEV does not detect GNOME keyring automatically with opera-developer --password-store=detect. On browserspy.dk no password is stored in GNOME keyring as i can inspected with seahorse.

    I had to start opera-developer --password-store=gnome to use GNOME keyring.

    Which distribution and window manager do you use?

    I had to start opera-developer --password-store=gnome to use GNOME keyring.

    But the passwords were still saved and you still got the 'save password' popup bar? (passwords are saved in a plain text store if gnome keyring / kde wallet is not autodetected)

  • @avl You did read my start post? I wrote Using Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS (x86_64; Unity) ;)
    No, i did not get the 'save password' popup bar. And no, the passwords are not saved as i can see in Opera's own passwordmanager.
    The passwords are saved if i start Opera explicitely with parameter --password-store=

    There must have been a problem with Opera DEV using older profile data from previous DEV version. After deleting Operas complete profile folder
    .config/opera-developer
    .cache/opera-developer
    the strong of passwords work now.

  • I don't know if it's related, anyway, here is an issue I have:

    Using opera-developer from an Ubuntu Unity session, saved user-name/password pairs works. That is, when I arrive on login web‑page for which I already entered my user name and password, and ask Opera to save it when it prompted me about it, then login fields are automatically filled.

    However, using opera-developer from an i3‑WM session, and although gnome-keyring-daemon is running, Opera seems to know nothing about my saved user names and passwords. Running Opera with the --password-store=gnome option as suggested in this thread, solves nothing.

    I'm using Opera 36.0.2079.0 on Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS 32 bits

  • Just solved my issue in the message above.

    I added this in i3‑WM's config file:

    exec --no-startup-id gnome-keyring-daemon --start --components=pkcs11,secrets,ssh,gpg
    

    I guess secrets was missing. Before this, it was launched from .profile using this:

    export $(gnome-keyring-daemon -s)
    

    There was no components list …

    Anyway, the --password-store=gnome option is still required. Without it, Opera does not use GNOME Keyring.
