kwalletcli_getpin — command line interface to pinentry


kwalletcli_getpin [-q] [-b | -m | -p prompt] [-E | -e errortext]
[-N NoText] [-t desctext] [-Y YesText]


The kwalletcli_getpin utility is a shell wrapper speaking to pinentry using the Assuan
protocol. It will ask the user for a passphrase and print it, without any trailing newline,
to standard output. There are options for asking a boolean question or displaying a

If PINENTRY is not empty but points to a non-existing or failing programme, pinentry is not
called. Instead, xmessage(1) is used for boolean queries and messages if DISPLAY is set;
otherwise, kwalletcli_getpin uses simple terminal I/O on GPG_TTY using stty(1) to disable
echo of terminal input for passphrase queries.

The options are as follows:

-b Ask for a confirmation (boolean) instead of a passphrase.

-E Unset a previously set error text.

-E errtxt Set the error text to errtxt, displaying a dialogue box with a red X icon
indicating that this is a retry question.

-m Display a message (one-button query) instead of asking.

-N NoText Use NoText instead of Cancel for the text of the abort button, if any.

-p prompt Set the small descriptive text shown in front of the input field (“the Prompt”)
to prompt.

-q Be more quiet.

-t desctxt Set the descriptive text (the input challenge) to desctxt.

-Y YesText Use YesText instead of OK for the text of the confirm button.

All input and output is assumed to be in UTF-8.


The kwalletcli_getpin utility exits 0 on success, 1 if the passphrase input was cancelled by
the user, or >1 if an error occurred. Confirmation (boolean) error codes are 0 for Yes, 1
for No, or >1 if an error occurred. Messages return >0 if an error occurred, 0 otherwise.

A summary of the error codes follows:
0 Read password successfully. Boolean question returned Yes/OK.
1 Boolean question returned No/Cancel.
2 Wrong command line syntax.
3 The process reading user input unexpectedly terminated or errored out.
4 Unexpected result reading from pinentry.
5 Unable to determine controlling tty, caller must set GPG_TTY.


DISPLAY If not set, pass current terminal information to pinentry.

GPG_TERM Terminal type of the current tty. Defaults to the value of the environment
variable TERM, or “vt100” if unset.

GPG_TTY The current terminal, determined by tty(1) if unset.

LC_CTYPE Passed to pinentry. Default: “en_US.UTF-8”

LC_MESSAGES Passed to pinentry. Unset by default.

PINENTRY The pinentry programme to use. Default: “pinentry”
