Review request for KDE Base Apps.

Bugs: 365722

Repository: kwallet-pam


Most recent Linux distributions setup a per-user XDG_RUNTIME_DIR as a tmpfs, which is also tied to their session lifecycle. Typically this is in /run/user/1000/.

My suggestion is to use $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/kwallet5.socket if XDG_RUNTIME_DIR exists, or fallback to /tmp/kwallet5_${username}.socket if it doesn't.

Reproducible: Always
