Description:

With PwManager you can easily manage your passwords.
PwManager saves your passwords blowfish-encrypted in one file, so you have to remember only one master-password instead of all. Instead of the master-password you can use a chipcard, so you don't have to remember a password to access the list.
PwManager has a KWallet emulation layer, available on systems with KDE-3.2 and above.

I don't have a Palm, so I'm not able to write it.
But I will assist everyone, who owns a Palm and is going to code it.

This program is very nice and easy to use. Reminds me of a program I was using in Windows. I just recently switched over (like 2 weeks ago). I am having a problem though. The emualte KWallet option is disabled (greyed out). You do I turn this feature on so I can get rid of that thing.

KWallet Emulation is only available in KDE 3.2. I guess you're running KDE 3.1.

SuSE 9 RPMS don't support KWallet.
SuSE 9.1 RPMS are available, now. Please use these. They contain KWallet support.

I like PWManager. I can control when and where it accesses my passwords, I can copy the password file to CD so to restore after a clean install, it uses blowfish encryption, no other package on my computer can access my passwords - this is a HUGE plus.
I don't know anything about KWallet, except that I cannot find a way to control which apps access my passwords and when they can have access (how many people actually sit down and read the code before installing an app?), I don't know how to restore passwords after a clean install, I don't know how secure KWallet's encryption algorythm is.

PWManager is much better, IMHO.

You may disable the "KWallet Emulation" in the configuration menu of PwManager, if you don't want any KWallet based application to mess around with your Database.
But, if you always lock your Database, if you are not using it, no application can access either password. It always asks you to unlock, before. So letting KWallet Emulation enabled should be always save.

I don't know how to restore passwords after a clean install,

The wallets are stored in ~/.kde/share/apps/kwallet

I don't know how secure KWallet's encryption algorythm is.

KWallet currently uses exactly the same algorithms, as PwManager does.

Have fun!

Why don't just use KWallet that comes with KDE 3.2?

Because PwManager has been there before KWallet and because KWallet lacks many features of PwManager.
PwManager implements a KWallet import interface and the next release will also implement a KWallet export interface. So, it's designed to co-exist with KWallet.

I like KWallet, because it's a great app and because it's usable. But I develop PwManager, because it implements things that KWallet will never implement. :)

So, if you're happy while using KWallet, there's no point for installing PwManager. But it you depend on things KWallet does not (and will never) implement, then you may try PwManager.

have a nice day.

Also because KWallet is too picky about when it want to actually enter in my information. It seems to have a mind of its own and only does what it is supposed to every now and then. PwManager actually works, which is one more feature I am waiting for from kwallet.

This app has been around longer than a usable KDE 3.2 release, and some individuals may not want to make the upgrade to 3.2 until it has proven to be stable.
