.TH KSSHASKPASS 1
.SH NAME
ksshaskpass \- prompts a user for a passphrase using KDE
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B kdesshaskpass
.SH DESCRIPTION
.B kshaskpass
is a KDE-based passphrase dialog for use with OpenSSH.
It is intended to be called by the
.BR ssh\-add (1)
program and not invoked directly.
It allows
.BR ssh\-add (1)
to obtain a passphrase from a user, even if not connected to a terminal
(assuming that an X display is available).
This happens automatically in the case where
.B ssh\-add
is invoked from one's
.B ~/.xsession
or as one of the KDE startup programs, for example.
.PP
In order to be called automatically by
.BR ssh\-add ,
.B ksshaskpass
should be installed as
.IR /usr/bin/ssh\-askpass .
