Support for libsecret has been introduced in version 0.8.0.

As libgnome-keyring is deprecated in favor of libsecret [1], would it be possible to switch from libgnome-keyring to libsecret ?

This can be achieved by adding libsecret to makedepends array and by replacing libgnome-keyring by libsecret in optdepends array.


This task depends upon

libsecret is already a makedepens as it is pulled by kwallet, so the current version should support it. (EDIT: it's pulled by pacman actually)

My bad, you are right. I removed libgnome-keyring and owncloud client still finds my credentials.

Modifying optional dependencies is sufficient.

Unfortunately I've had to disable libsecret because it breaks the kwallet backend, which is a serious regression. Will re-enable it when the issue is fixed upstream

That's sad. For now I will rebuild it locally with libsecret support because I don't use use kwallet.

Thanks for your support !

P.S: I guess you made a mistake with your last update. Although you added the flag -DLIBSECRET_SUPPORT=OFF for cmake, you also added libsecret as an optional dependency.
