I’m using the nitrokey app v. 1.4.1 (appimage) with my nitrokey pro 2 and KDE (plasma 5.24.4, framework 5.92.0) on kubuntu 22.04. When using the nitrokey as a smartcard everything works well. However, when I start the nitrokey app, then after a short while the nitrokey stalls: it’s LED shows a constant red light and the key is no longer usable. The only remedy is to disconnect the key. After connecting it again, the process repeats.
In practice, this means I have to start the nitrokey app get whatever I need from it (TOTP, passwords) and very quickly close it, which is rather annoying.
Also, the app sometimes crashes (and has to be restarted) when unlocking it’s password safe. After the restart, the password safe is unlocked … this is only a minor nuisance.
I did not experience any issues when using gnome (on ubuntu 20.04) but remember having experienced the password safe issue with other desktop environments as well. Hence, I suspect there is an issue with running the app in KDE.
Similar experience or suggestions anyone?
Thanks in advance.
