Re: [Evolution] evolutio forgets my passwords every start


            I was doing some proofs in my system in which live together KDE, Gnome 3 and Cinnamon.  When I start Evolution in Gnome and click on "Send/Receiving"  it asks to me for keyring password and then start normally.  When I start Evolution in KDE and click on  "Send/Receiving"  it asks just like in Gnome.  It doesn't ask me twice.  The same happen in Cinnamon.  I thought that was the normal behaviour. 
Then, what is the normal behaviour?  No asking at all?

As has been commented several times on this list over the years, none of
KDE knows anything about the Gnome keyring. KDE has its own entirely
separate keystore, the KDE Wallet.

The existence of two subsystems with essentially the same functionality
but which don't communicate with each other is a constant irritant.
Every time I start Evo in a new login session I have to re-type my login
password *and* my Gnome keyring password (it used to be just one of
them, now it's both; I guess that's progress ...). There's some talk of
a new KDE-side package which will address this but I don't know the
