            Bug ID: 383367
           Summary: Wallet (custom password storages) cannot be opened
                    after upgrade to Plasma5
           Product: kwalletmanager
           Version: 17.04.2
          Platform: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
          Assignee: va...@kde.org
          Reporter: codestr...@posteo.org
  Target Milestone: ---

I use KWallet with a custom wallet to store an encrypted list of secret
passwords.

After upgrade to openSUSE Tumbleweed which brought the latest Plasma5 I noticed
that my custom wallet disappeared.

I was just about to report a bug when I found out the solution which I document
here:

1) Kill kwalletd5 (that prevented the old .kwl files to be loaded)
2) Open the old kwalletmanager (which accesses the path
~/.kde4/share/apps/kwallet/ which contains the custom .kwl files)
3a) KWallet(4) now shows the original list of password storages
3b) Open the custom storage, copy contents to clipboard
4) Open kwalletmanager5, create a new password storage (which is now stored in
~/.local/share/kwalletd/) and paste content.

I wonder if this migration was supposed to work automatically without the
described intervention.
