Re: [Geary] how Geary stores the password in the gnome keyring

Thanks Jim, it works!

Ah.  The difference is that Geary uses only one key-value pair to reference the password in the keyring while Evolution uses three.

Here's a modified version of the script:

import sys
import gobject
import gnomekeyring

    user = sys.argv[1]
except ValueError as e:
    print 'Error parsing arguments: %s' % (e,)
    print 'Usage: %s USERNAME' % (sys.argv[0],)


    keys = gnomekeyring.find_network_password_sync("org.yorba.geary imap_username:" + user)
    password = keys[0]["password"].replace('"', r'\"')
    print 'set imap_pass = "%s"' % (password,)
except (gnomekeyring.NoMatchError, gnomekeyring.IOError), e:

Change "imap_username" to "smtp_username" to fetch the SMTP password.

I make no guarantee that this is the most Pythonic of solutions.

No, I'm asking why the script below can't access the password stored by Geary on Gnome keyring, while it can access the password stored by Evolution (I didn't test Evolution, I'm just reporting what I've been told).
