Missing SSL Preferences module in System Settings?

Any idea why my system is missing SSL Preferences module in System Settings?
I asked this question in the openSUSE forum (below). Now I wonder how to import SSL certificates system wide?

Operating System: openSUSE Tumbleweed 20231105
KDE Plasma Version: 5.27.9
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.111.0
Qt Version: 5.15.11

It looks like openSUSE explicitly excludes it: File kdelibs4support.spec of Package kdelibs4support - openSUSE Build Service

It appears KDE added the software package ‘Kleopatra’ to manage certificates.

Kleopatra is a front-end for GPG and manages GPG keys. It has nothing to do with SSL certificates

Maybe you might help explain why the SSL Preferences module in System Settings was removed? I’m still looking…


Maybe you missed my reply, but your distribution removes it. You would need to ask in the openSUSE packagers why they removed it :slight_smile:

I did ask in the openSUSE forum https://forums.opensuse.org/t/missing-ssl-preferences-module-in-system-settings/170348

Why did openSUSE remove the SSL Preferences module from System Settings?

That’s a question for them, not us.

If I read the OpenSUSE spec file correctly then it isn’t really excluding the module but splitting it into a separate “kssl” package

Just to verify, I just checked YAST and I see that kssl is not installed by default. Here is what openSUSE says in the description.

"kssl - Code and utilities to ease the transition to KDE Frameworks 5

This package includes CMake macros and C++ classes whose functionality has been replaced by code in CMake, Qt and other frameworks.

Code should aim to port away from this framework eventually. The API documentation of the classes in this framework and the notes at https://community.kde.org/Frameworks/Porting_Notes should help with this.

Note that some of the classes in this framework, especially KStandardDirs, may not work correctly unless any libraries and other software using the KDE4 Support framework are installed to the same location as KDELibs4Support, although it may be sufficient to set the KDEDIRS environment variable correctly."
