I do web development using VSCode. I was using the Solus Budgie distro before switching to Manjaro KDE, and there whenever git needed my SSH key it would graphically prompt for a password and then allow me to remember that forever by keeping it in Seahorse I guess?
On Manjaro KDE none of this works. I have to enter my passphrase every time I want to use the SSH key for anything and it does not work at all in VSCode, saying that authentication has been denied?
My question is: what's the best way to set this all up, and why is it not done out of the box like on Solus?
My goal is being able to press the sync button in VScode and have it perform pull and push git operations, asking for the password of the key graphically unless provided before. This is how it works out of the box on Solus Budgie.
I looked at similar issues and the arch wiki but was not able to set up KWallet to keep the SSH keys and bash sessions to use it
