The krb5-auth-dialog package offers a simple dialog to monitor kerberos tickets, and pops up a dialog when they are about to expire. Eventually, we expect it to be part of GNOME.

Configuration:

Configuration settings are handled via gconf.

You can set the principal that is used to acquire tickets via:

gconftool-2 --type=string --set /apps/krb5-auth-dialog/principal "principal@YOUR.REALM"

You can hide the tray icon via:

gconftool-2 --type=bool --set /apps/krb5-auth-dialog/show_trayicon false

You can set the time of the first password prompt via:

gconftool-2 --type=int --set /apps/krb5-auth-dialog/prompt_minutes 30

You can set the principals pkinit identifier via:

gconftool-2 --type=string --set /apps/krb5-auth-dialog/pk_userid "FILE:/path/to/user.pem,/path/to/user.key"

or if you're using a smartcard:

gconftool-2 --type=string --set /apps/krb5-auth-dialog/pk_userid "PKCS11:/usr/lib/opensc/opensc-pkcs11.so"

A note on translations:


Kerberos doesn't translate either its prompts or its error messages. As the prompt is very visible, we need to translate it externally. To do this, the etpo binary in etpo/ can be used to extract the public strings that kerberos uses.  We are checking that in for now, until kerberos gets translated.
