     kwalletcli — command line interface to the KDE Wallet

     kwalletcli [-q] -hV
     kwalletcli [-q] -f folder -e entry [-P | -p password]

     The kwalletcli utility is a command line interface to KWallet.
     It will only work if KDE is running (DCOP) and reachable (via
     X11).  kwalletcli can be used to get password entries from the
     Wallet, or to write them there.

     The options are as follows:

     -e entry     Define the key (entry) to use when accessing the
                  Wallet.  Mandatory.

     -f folder    Set the folder to use when accessing the Wallet.

     -h           Display the usage.

     -P           Read the password to write from standard input.
                  Currently limited to 65535 octets.

     -p password  Write password into the designated location in the

     -q           Be more quiet.  In combination with -V, do not
                  display anything.

     -V           Display the kwalletcli version information.

     Default mode of operation, that is, unless -P or -p are used,
     is to read the password from the Wallet and print it to stan‐
     dard output as-is, without any trailing newline.

     All input and output is assumed to be in UTF-8.  The password
     string (whether read from standard input or command line) is
     now converted from “possibly UTF-8 but binary transparent” to
     standards-conformant UTF-8 for the Qt side, and back upon read‐
     ing out.

     The kwalletcli utility exits 0 on success or >0 if an error

     1    The entry specified cannot be found (read access).

     2    The usage was shown.

     3    The Wallet could not be opened.  May be a missing DCOP
          connection.  Perhaps DISPLAY is not set.

     4    The folder specified cannot be found (read access).

     5    The folder specified cannot be opened.

     6    The value to the key specified could not be retrieved.

     8    An error occured trying to write the value.

     The exit codes 1 and 4, on reading, are not fatal; they merely
     indicate that the folder or entry specified does not exist.
     The other errors are fatal and may be used to indicate the user
     that the KWallet should not be used any more during the current

     kwalletcli was written by Thorsten Glaser ⟨⟩
     mostly for tarent GmbH.

     Do not use -p password to store it, unless you absolutely must.
     It is a security risk, because the command line invocation is
     public information in a normal Unix environment.  Use -P
     instead and provide the password on standard input.

     Beware of trailing newlines, especially outside of mksh(1)

     If DISPLAY is not set, not valid, or kdeinit or kdeinit4 cannot
     start for other reasons, kwalletcli may not recover gracefully.
     In KDE 4 versions, this may even result in a Segmentation
     fault.  The author does not know of a way to catch this early;
     patches are welcome.

     There is no way (yet) to set a wallet other than the default
     wallet.  While this is a possible enhancement to the kwalletcli
     CLI, there is no feasible way to expose this functionality to
     the various front-ends, such as pinentry-kwallet(1), anyway, so
     the priority of fixing this is low.
