Hello, I have a Fedora 22 laptop with KDE 5. I use KWallet to store my WiFi password. Until yesterday, when I was trying to connect to a WiFi, KWallet was opened and NM used the stored password with no problem. I did not changed something in my configuration, but I did an update to my system. I checked the NM applet with a couple of connections I use more frequently and I verified that the password is the correct one and that the password is stored (encrypted) "For this user only".

Any hint as to where the KWallet integration is, would be helpful.

I recently had a similar issue in Fedora 23 after upgrading to kf5-kcoreaddons-5.21.0-4.fc23 and kio-extras-16.04.0-1.fc23. I don't know the cause. To solve it I used the wallet manager to export the wallet as XML, logged out of KDE, logged in via CLI, backed up and deleted every KDE wallet configuration file in my home directory, logged back in to KDE, and imported the XML into the new empty wallet that was created automatically.
